Trash to Tunes with Dennis Waring
Wednesday, April 11, 1-2 pm
Join us for a special performance from ethnomusicologist, performer, and artist Dennis Waring and his array of incredibly indigenous homemade instruments, made from natural and recycled materials. Dr. Waring will introduce and perform with a variety of instruments, such as bull roarer, sea shell trumpet, and bamboo flute, providing amazing music, as well
as a new awareness into folklore and science. Some lucky audience members may get to help with the performance, too! The program is free of charge but pre-registration is required and tickets are limited. Call 203-977-6521 to register. This program has been made possible by an Innovation grant from Recycle CT, as part of our Recycled Recreations Makerspace project.
