Almost anything in the world can become a percussion instrument if you use your imagination! Percussion instruments are the oldest and largest instrument family, and their sound is created by striking or shaking the instrument. This family includes the xylophone, glockenspiel, chimes, cymbals, and drums. Philadelphia Orchestra percussionist, Don Liuzzi, will guide you through these big and small, loud and soft instruments. We'll clap our hands and stomp our feet through this performance!
