Created by the Percussive Arts Society, Rhythm!, celebrates rhythm and percussion in music and culture. Rhythm! Discovery Center features educational experiences and interactive exhibits. Rhythm is the latest development in Indianapolis, Indiana since the Percussive Arts Society moved from Lawton, Oklahoma. The center will contain an extensive collection of instruments from around the world as an integral extension of the Percussive Arts Society.
The grand opening of the Rhythm! Discovery Center is set for November 21, 2009 and will feature live performances by local artists and ensembles. Jason McGerr, drummer for Death Cab for Cutie, is scheduled to appear and welcome visitors. A raffle will be held throughout the day to win ten minute one-on-one drum set lessons from McGerr.
The Rhythm! Discovery Center is located in downtown Indianapolis. For grand opening information, directions, and information on featured percussion exhibits visit the Rhythm! Discovery website: www.rhythmdiscoverycenter.org
