World Beat Percussion Trio

Sunday, April 26, 2:00 p.m.

The Irving Park Fine Arts Committee is excited to present the World Beat Percussion Trio in an interactive performance on April 26th. World Beat Percussion Trio has been playing together for over 20 years in various forms. The Trio features Jeff Handley, Tina Laughlin, and Brandon Podjasek. Separately, these three musicians perform regularly in Chicago operas, orchestras, ballets and theater productions. As the trio, they perform for many area public schools and libraries.

At a World Beat Percussion Trio performance the audience will see over 50 instruments representing Africa, India, the U.S., and Latin countries. You’ll experience music from around the globe, plus music important to Chicago history. At the end of each performance there will be plenty of extra instruments for the audience to play, with some coaching by the trio.

The concert will be held at Irving Park Lutheran Church, 4100 N. Harding Ave. at 2:00 p.m. A reception with the artists will follow the concert, hosted by the Fine Arts Committee. Concerts are free of charge, but donations are gladly accepted. This performance is kid-friendly – families are welcome and encouraged to come!
