Steel Pan Drum Circle

World music and contemporary percussion master Ray McNamara shares his unique musical perspective, performing a blend of soca (soul of calypso) and jazz on the Steel Pan Drum.

Learn a little of the history and evolution of this surprisingly modern 20th century instrument, which was originally resourcefully created out of found objects. The audience will be treated to the magical island tones of the Steel Pan and have the opportunity to try out instruments and be part of a drum circle.

Marshall Magoon Magic

Magician Marshall Magoon is in demand as an illusion designer for the San Francisco Ballet, Hollywood films and Broadway shows, yet he relishes his role as a family entertainment Magician who creates unforgettable magical experiences for children and adults alike with his special blend of magic skill, music, and comedy.

Fratello Marionettes

The Fratello Marionettes produce high quality marionette shows where every last detail is designed and built by the performers themselves. 'The Vaudeville Follies,' a marionette variety show, is presented in the spirit of the old time music hall. The puppeteers perform in full view of the audience with marionettes that can be up to three feet tall, and include singers, dancers, clowns, trick marionettes, and a trained dog!

One World Rhythm

One World Rhythm creates an interactive, in-the-moment music experience by placing a drum, percussion, or melodic instrument into the hands of every participant, then guiding them through an adventure to find their own rhythm and make music together.

CelloJoe

CelloJoe is the world’s only beatboxing, long distance bicycling, looping cellist, who has created his own unique genre: Classical Hip Hop. CelloJoe records live on stage with a loop pedal and produces intricate tapestries of harmony, melody, and rhythm. His beatboxing (vocal percussion) and funky cello grooves form a rich soundscape showcasing his talents. He has toured the world sharing music on a bicycle packed with his cello.
