Mike Block and the Global Musicians Workshop Children’s Performance


The Music District - 639 S College


Please RSVP through Off the Hook Arts.

Join us for a family-oriented, hands-on one-of-a-kind performance by Silk Road Ensemble members — multi-style cellist Mike Block, Kaoru Watanabe (Japanese bamboo flutes), and cross-cultural percussionist Shane Shanahan — joined by innovative bass trombonist Steve Wilson and composer/keyboardist Bruce Adolphe — at The Music District. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to interact with Yo-Yo Ma’s Grammy-winning, world-traveling musicians! Come talk with the musicians, listen to their improvised music, hear Bruce’s brand-new musical version of the Buddhist tale The Four Harmonious Friends, composed especially for these musicians in their first Off the Hook Arts SummerFest appearance. And there’s more: try your hand at playing some cool instruments!

BONUS EVENT: please join us for hands-on fun with instruments from the Global Village Museum’s collection and The Woodshed! We’ll be set out on the upstairs, west side of the Music District from 2:00pm – 3:00pm. Don’t miss this great opportunity to play with some unique instruments from around the world including drums, strummed and fun percussive toys. There will be games and refreshments too!
