HUMAN/INSTRUMENT

Sunday, April 8, 2018

We each have our own unique sound.

The human body is the original musical instrument – and it is the only instrument that we all possess!

It is no wonder then that acapella song and body percussion are two of the most powerful and widely beloved forms of music. They speak uniquely to us and our own unique sounds. In this empowering musical celebration, Rachael Worby harnesses the rhythm of our hearts through breathtaking harmonies and show-stopping body percussion. Join us and rediscover the uplifting truth that music makes every body beautiful.


 
WHAT’S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS EVENT

  • Singing elicits a deep response that can affect our very biology. Researchers of the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden discovered that when the choirs they were studying sang together, especially in unison, it took very little time for all heartbeats to synchronize.

    MUSE/IQUE is particularly excited to open our doors EARLY to share the MUSE/IQUE Health Fair, a carnival of interactive games and surprises in our inimitable style. Join us at 5pm for a musical exploration of health through the opportunity to match your heartbeat with a song; an optical and auditory illusion designed to challenge the senses; a music therapy jam session -- and so much more!!!

  • Artistic Director Rachael Worby will narrate our journey and provide her insight into the venue, the repertoire, and the theme.

    Like all MUSE/IQUE events, this will feature a multitude of connections across music styles and disciplines.
