"Rehearsals are ramping up for this concert - it is so much fun watching the piano players reaching over/under/around each other, jumping up to play INSIDE the piano, and bopping their heads to the beat!
As for the percussionists, we are doing our best to make it from one instrument to another in time for the next gong crash/timpani roll/vibraphone/marimba line!
Rumour has it this concert might be in the round, so audience members can see the craziness going on from all angles!"
