MAKESHOP: Recycled Instruments

MAKESHOP Program

10:00am
5:00pm
July 28, 2019

Join MAKESHOP as we create musical instruments from recycled materials. Help us turn trash into musical treasure as we explore the possibilities of repurposing different materials. Join the performance with an instrument of your own!

Enjoy making your own instruments? Join us for a movie night showing Landfill Harmonic. This documentary follows the Orchestra as it takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world. Follow the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum that out of necessity started creating instruments entirely out of garbage. This film is a beautiful story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two vital issues of our times: poverty and waste pollution. For more info and to purchase tickets click here!
