Rhythm Band Instruments, makers of the pitched hollow plastic tubes called Boomwhackers®, are donating instrument kits around the country for participatory project, both on Make Music Day and for Make Music Winter!
On June 21, 2021, Boomwhackers, hand percussion, and other small RBI instruments were featured in drum circles, parades, a “Nursery Song Rhythm Jam,” and dozens of other events.
And on December 21, 2021, RBI is providing over 300 instruments ranging from bells to Boomwhackers in eleven cities for participatory winter music. RBI’s instruments will star in New York City‘s “Bell by Bell,” a participatory Make Music Winter tradition for the 10th straight year; Ossining/Briarcliff (NY)’s day of concerts, interactive music events, workshops and music lessons; Land O’ Lakes (WI)’s beginner ukulele and handbell classes; and other RBI-supported events in Montgomery (AL), Toledo (OH), Salem (OR), Montclair (NJ), Altoona (PA), Federal Way and Gig Harbor (WA), and Milwaukee (WI).
Thank you to Rhythm Band Instruments for supporting Make Music Day since 2016!
