Join us at the University of Washington for a day of music with some incredible artists. Here are just some of the amazing artists that will be in attendance:

Pius Cheung [marimba]
[4pm masterclass, 7:30pm concert]
Dubbed a “neo-Romantic marimba virtuoso”, Pius Cheung is widely known as a master soloist on his instrument. His brilliant CD of Bach’s Goldberg Variations was written about in a feature story in The New York Times, which praised not only the technical feat of performing the intricacies of this keyboard work with 4 mallets, but also expressed admiration for his “deeply expressive interpretation, notable for its clear voicing, eloquent phrasing and wide range of color and dynamics.”

Ben Smith [drumset]
[10am clinic]
Ben Smith has an enjoyed an extensive career as a drummer musician providing drumbeats, drum tracks and drumming performances that include appearances with the musical band Heart on the Jay Leno Tonight Show, The Ellen Show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and on Conan.

He also performed on drums with composer Nancy Wilson and Mike McCready of Pearl Jam for the Cameron Crowe film "Vanilla Sky" starring Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz, including the song "I Fall Apart", sung by Cameron Diaz.

Seattle Seahawks Blue Thunder Drumline
[12pm performance]
Seahawks Blue Thunder is the heartbeat of the fans. This high-energy entertainment drumline was established in 2004 at CenturyLink Field, performing throughout the stadium before, during and after games. Not your typical drumline, Blue Thunder uses a variety of rhythms and visuals, incorporating rock and roll drumming alongside drum corps style, endearing them to Seahawks fans of all ages.
