Let the drums roll as The Ringling kicks-off a new season of performance! Play a plethora of percussive instruments in a jam session lead by percussionist Matthew Duvall then enjoy a dynamic performance by The Kraken Quartet, crescendo-ing to a fireworks display! Drummantra is a world premiere by Composer and Drummer Rich Stitzel.
Join us in the Museum of Art Courtyard to experience delicious hors d’oeuvres stations from Sarasota-Manatee Originals, complimentary beer and wine with an additional cash bar. Don’t miss this chance to get the pulse of The Ringling’s year-long New Stages performance series as you revel in the rhythms of The Ringling.
Rhythm of the Ringling will be the culmination of two days of performance by Matthew Duvall, percussionist for GRAMMY® winning chamber ensemble Eighth Blackbird. Duvall will present a series of percussive performances on October 19th and 20th that simultaneously celebrate and utilize The Ringling’s flora and fauna as an instrument of sound.
