Unique Musical Experience Brings Spontaneous Joy

Posted by Leanne Yarrow, neighbors go, Sept 1, 2011

Unique Musical Experience Brings Spontaneous Joy

Friends Place clients and staff are seated in a large circle in anticipation of the “Experience the Drum” program. This is an interactive African drum circle-something most of us have never heard of, much less ever participated in. With a genuine desire to share what he loves, musician Edward Henderson offers to lead us in this unique, rhythmical, music-making opportunity. Backed with years of education and experience, Edward provides the percussion instruments, and Friends Place Adult Day Services provides the “circle.”

Unique Musical Experience Brings Spontaneous Joy

Starting with a simple, single beat from his own drum, Edward gently invites everyone to join the celebration. As the rhythm builds, some folks enthusiastically dive right in; others start tentatively but are soon drawn into the music and become completely involved. Each person spontaneously adds their own part, contributing to the overall effect. The entire room soon pulsates with joyous excitement and sound. As the music swells, the total process transcends boundaries of physical ability, age, or talent. It empowers everyone to connect and be a part of the building process. The experience is cathartic, amazing, and is truly something to behold.
