Event Description

Flowerpot Music, written by celebrated composer Elliot Cole, is a composition for an unlikely but beautiful percussion instrument – the flowerpot! Join a group and create outdoor soundscapes through easy-to-learn games, appropriate for musicians and non-musicians alike.
This performance will be part of many performances of Flowerpot Music as part of Make Music Day, and will happen alongside dozens of other musical events across Chicago, the US, and the world! (For more information, go to https://www.makemusicday.org/national…/flowerpot-music/)
All are welcome, regardless of musical experience.
On the day of, we will meet behind the Horner Park Fieldhouse. Parking should be plentiful, both in a free lot, and along California Avenue.
Bring your own flowerpot, or another resonant bowl-like object of your choice. You can also bring mallets if you have them, but no worries if you don’t: we’ll have mallets to spare, generously donated by Vic Firth.
We’ll learn the piece for the first hour, take a break, and then perform Flowerpot Music in full!
