A Circle of Drums: The Rhythms of Our Life
September 8 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$70
A Circle of Drums is Bill Kehl’s high-energy, hands-on, let’s-create-a-powerful-moment-together presentation emphasizing collaborative, creative individual expression while also exhibiting the benefits of synergetic group dynamics. With an ensemble of beautiful drums and percussion instruments of all sizes and shapes from around the world, Bill energetically facilitates a meaningful team-building experience that exuberantly celebrates the expansive nature of human potential and the ecstatic response to group rhythm-making. Considering the universal appeal and many applications for enhancing boundless team spirit that drumming potentially provides, it is Bill’s hope that anyone and everyone who participates in the percussive community experience will enjoy an extremely powerful and wonderfully exhilarating body/mind/spirit encounter that will last a lifetime!
Bring your own drum if you have one.
Workshop Fee: $$70. Registration deadline is August 31.
Presenter: Bill Kehl has been drawn to the enchanting rhythms of exotic percussion instruments ever since his repeated attempts at raiding the musical shelf were thwarted by his kindergarten teacher many moons ago. Bill’s passion for primitive musical instruments and the delicious diversity of drums found throughout the world led him to create the popular “Earth, Music … Magic!”, an educational program for children, and “A Circle of Drums … the Rhythms of Life”, a dynamic, completely interactive presentation featuring the drums and percussion instruments of many cultures and traditions. He has been facilitating the joyous journey of group rhythm-making since 1997, presenting at conferences, seminars, workshops, retreats, community celebrations and hosting many open drum circles in various locations. Formerly a member of the popular eclectic folk/acoustic group Northern Lights, Bill founded Planetary Productions, Ltd. in 1993 and has offered his presentations to groups throughout Wisconsin and the country. Bill’s new endeavor is a program entitled “Heart & Mind ~ Body & Soul: Celebrating Music, Culture, and the Creative Spirit” and has already proven to be a hit with a wide spectrum of audiences and music lovers.
