Todd Green will do a World Music Lecture-Demonstration on Thursday, August 17, 2017, at the Brewery Arts Center Performance Hall. Todd Green will take the audience on a tour of musical instruments from around the world as he demonstrates 25 string, flute, and percussion instruments and the rhythms and scales used in other cultures. He will relate the instruments culturally and historically to familiar Western instruments, pointing out differences and commonalities. His custom-built electronic system allows him to layer instruments as he performs, taking the audience on a tour of many countries and their diverse styles of music. He intersperses his playing with explanations of the music and the instruments. Green’s artistic mission is to “help bring down the barriers that divide us by experiencing other cultures through their music.”
