Langley Community Music School (LCMS) is inviting the community to its annual ‘Family Intro to Music Night.’

Taking place Tuesday, March 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Rose Gellert Hall, the evening’s highlight will be a free children’s concert featuring percussionist Bruce Henczel.

The evening includes a hands-on tour of a variety of instruments, student demonstrations, meet and greets with the teachers, and opportunities to learn more about music programs offered at LCMS.

At 7 p.m., Henczel begins his heart-pounding performance. He will showcase a range of percussion instruments and perform rhythms from around the world — from African hand drums to Spanish flamenco on the marimba.

Henczel is also a composer, chamber artist, clinician and teacher with a Master of Music in Percussion Performance from the University of British Columbia. He has performed as the concerto soloist with the Vancouver Philharmonic, the West Coast Symphony, Okanagan Symphony Orchestra and the Kwantlen University Wind Symphony and Chorus.

“The ‘Family Intro to Music Night’ is one of our most exciting nights of the year,” said LCMS principal Susan Magnusson.

“It’s always special to see the excitement of children as they try instruments for the first time. We invite families to enjoy a fun, interactive, informative and entertaining musical evening. Bruce Henzcel’s performance is not to be missed.”

This concert is the second in a series of free children’s concerts at LCMS. The third in the series, featuring the Rose Gellert String Quartet & Guests, takes place Saturday, May 5.

The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St. For more info, call 604-534-2848 or visit
