Giveaway: Think Outside the Drum

Barbara Johnston/University of Notre Dame

Happy Monday, mamas! Time for a giveaway with a great beat!

We’ve got FOUR tickets to see the show Think Outside the Drum at Walton Arts Center on opening night, Feb. 23rd. It’s an interactive drum show for kids of all ages and is going to be SO.COOL.

To give you a little listen of what the show will be like — here’s a video clip:

John Cage – The Works for Percussion 2 – THIRD COAST PERCUSSION from Third Coast Percussion on Vimeo.

ABOUT THE SHOW: Families of all ages will clap, sing and listen while learning about the extraordinary range of percussion instruments that can be found in cultures around the world as well as in their own kitchen cabinets.

Think Outside the Drum will begin in Walton Arts Center’s new Walker Atrium with Terry Riley’s landmark work “In C,” which has been performed thousands of times across the world. Third Coast Percussion will be joined by dozens of local students and professional musicians to offer this celebrated minimalist composition to Northwest Arkansas Families. The event will then move into the renovated Starr Theater for an interactive session so the whole family can get involved.

We love interactive theatre!

  1. A good song I unwind/chill out to is “Roar” by Katy Perry. It’s a great song for me to just clear my head and “rock out” to. Lifts me up when I’m having a rough day too.

  2. I like to listen to southern rock and classic rock when I am by myself and trying to chill! 🙂

  3. I love all music, it can totally change my mood and brighten my day.

  4. I can’t resist singing along to any song by Journey. *I’m a newsletter subscriber and follow you on Instagram. 🙂

  5. My daughter would love this show!!!! I like to unwind to indigo girls or black eyed peas!!!! M

  6. I love to unwind to Disturbed, Sound od Silence. It’s a wonderful song, with a great message and rocking beats!

  7. I don’t discriminate, especially w/my music! I pretty much love it all and there is something about a song on the radio or the voice of my kids singing that just puts a smile on my face and takes away a bad day. Of course, Happy by Pharrell Williams seems to get me out of a funk the quickest!

  8. I love music with a good beat like Toby Mac! We ALWAYS have music on in the car!

  9. I love some Seeds Family Worship. Every song! They’re all Scripture based, nothing more or less. There’s something about singing along that is calming and great for refocusing.

  10. We are a musical family with budding guitarists, violinist, pianist and most of all drummer. We love to listen to all types of music, and we definitely get into it!
