Berkshire Music School will present "Drum2TalkTEENS" with Otha Day at 11 a.m. Monday through Friday, Aug 17-21, on the tented lawn of the music school, 30 Wendell Ave. This one-week program is offered free to middle and high school students.
West African drums and percussion instruments paired with accessible and joyful rhythmic experiences will be a connecting element while participants have opportunities, through facilitated dialogue, to explore their own relationship to race, the context of racism in America, and the psychological impacts of racism on all communities and individuals.
Class size is limited and preregistration is required. Students are asked to commit to participating for the full week, and may register by calling 413-442-1411.
