Drum Circle: “ A gathering at which people use hand drums from many cultures and various percussion elements to create in-the-moment musical masterpieces. No previous musical experience required.”

Drum circles are places where we explore possibilities. As we create music together we experience feelings of accomplishment for ourselves while contributing to something larger than ourselves.

In the circle we learn from each other and the music we make transcends artificial differences and labels of age, ethnicity, gender and ability. The unity of the drum circle is spiritual, healing and therapeutic!

Eevent is sponsored by Spiritual Care Services and the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation.
