Evelyn Glennie: 'The Heart of Sound'

When: Sat., April 9, 7 p.m. 2016

Evelyn Glennie’s music gives new meaning to the phrase “feeling the beat.” Profoundly deaf since age 12, the percussionist picks out notes via vibrations that run through her feet and body as she plays. Sticks in hand, the mistress of rhythm has recorded more than 30 albums, won three Grammy Awards and become one of the only players to maintain a full-time career as a solo percussionist. Glennie performs both unaccompanied and alongside members of Vermont’s Community Engagement Lab Festival Orchestra in works by Ney Rosauro, Arvo Pärt, Tchaikovsky and Dvořák.

Price: $15-40.
