Make Music


Turn that empty flowerpot upside down and make some Flowerpot Music!

Flowerpot Music, written by award-winning composer Elliot Cole and directed by percussionist Peter Ferry, is a composition for an unlikely but beautiful percussion instrument – the flowerpot! Bell-like tones are passed from performer to performer in improvised gestures called “blooms” that sweep through the group. The piece is written in simple prose, and can be performed by non-musicians and musicians alike.

How Can You Participate?

A team of 12 individuals will perform Flowerpot Music as a part of Make Music Hartford. The performance will be live-streamed internationally as a part of 8+ hours of live Flowerpot Music on June 21st. Interested in being one of the 12 Hartford performers? Register below.
