Event Description
Percussionist, composer, and storyteller Cory Hills brings his sonic art form and musical expertise into the Spencer Museum of Art in this four-day workshop for children aged 6-12 years. Students will work with Hills to devise original stories inspired by works of art from the Spencer’s collection. Using a variety of professional and homemade instruments, Hills will work with the students to create original musical compositions to bring the stories to life and to improvise in response to the artistic works selected. The workshop will culminate in a live, collaborative music and story-telling performance on Thursday, June 25, at 6:30 PM. This public event will also feature original compositions by Hills.
