Symphony percussionist Anthony Robinson joins Michael Butterman and the Grambling drum line in family concert at Riverview Theater Sat, Jan 27, 3 pm

Anthony Robinson, percussionist for the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra, will bring his drum and fife corps to Riverview Theater Sat, Jan 27, at 3 pm, as part of Bang the Drum, Feel the Beat. The innovative program marks the return of the SSO to providing an interactive concert designed to reach kids and parents.

"We've got pie pans for the audience to play, we've got great guests," said SSO director Michael Butterman," and it's a program with which I've had success in Rochester, NY, and Jacksonville, FL." In fact, the maestro flew to Colorado last week to conduct a similar family concert.

The Grambling State University Marching Band's drum line will add a supercharged pulse to the program.

Adults $20; kids, $5
