Had a great time last night at the Wooden Beats Concert! Baobab Youth Performers were joined by Tine Rufaro Marimba Band for a couple of sets of West and Southern African music. We did a couple of collaborative pieces, layering melodic and rhythmic beats of overlapping twos, threes, and fours. Very fun! The intimate, funky Kildare room at St. Brigid’s Centre for the Arts made for a very special energy in the room. A great turnout for the concert and a successful silent auction made this a real success for our organization! Big thanks to the Baobab Board of Directors, Hayley de Bie, Rory Magill and all the parent volunteers for their hard work! At the event, with the help of our alumnae, we also launched our 2019-2020 Season which will be the 25th and farewell season, (see previous blog post). More details on that coming soon…What a special evening it was all around!
