Flowerpot Music

Flowerpot Music Beautiful new music by a renowned composer for an unexpected instrument that anyone can play! Be a part of this unique musical experience. Register here: About “Flowerpot Music,” written by composer Elliot Cole and artistically 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 outdoor space, creating an immersive soundscape. Cole has created a special version of the piece, “Flowerpot Music: Make Music Day book”, that will be performed around the country for Make Music Day on Tuesday June 21, 2022. The piece is written in simple prose instructions, and can be performed by non-musicians and musicians alike.
