This is just a very quick and entertaining post for the weekend. I came across it whilst browsing and just had to share it with the Daily Genius community. It’s just one of many incredible songs performed by the Louisville Leopard Percussionists. They’re a non-profit that is doing some tremendous things with students looking to play, learn, and explore the world of music.
I was a trumpet player back in middle school and know the value of music in education. I also know that state budgets here in the U.S. are shrinking – especially when it comes to music and the arts. So it’s great to see this non-profit offering a chance for young students to be creative and express themselves through some very impressive performances. Enjoy the video – there are others too so check out that link above for more of them.
If you’re in the Louisville area, go check out some of their performances, too. You’ll be blown away by this music talent, methinks 🙂
