Percussionist and educator Gabriel Globus-Hoenich will be in residence at Britt Music & Arts Festival for the 2015 season. Gabriel is one of the founders of Drumming for Social Change, an organization dedicated to researching and developing percussion based educational programming. Gabriel recently spent over five weeks studying Brazilian percussion in Salvador da Bahia, Brasil and researching how percussion and folkloric music can be used as conduit for social change. Gabriel also leads the 12 piece timba band GGH and The People of Earth for whom he composes, arranges, and plays percussion.
A 2008 graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, Gabriel has studied with some of the premier percussion teachers in the world, including Kenny Washington, Rodney Green, Don Liuzzi, Robert Van Sice, and Alan Abel. He is a member of Sixth Floor Trio, featured in the 2015 Britt Classical Festival.
