Great Percussion Performances – Evelyn Glennie

Posted in great performances, videos at 5:00 am by Administrator

Evelyn Glennie is a virtuoso percussionist from Scotland. Dame Glennie is the first full-time solo percussion artist in modern Western history, giving over 100 performances each year. One interesting fact about Dame Glennie is that she has been profoundly deaf from age 12–but this hasn’t stopped her from reaching the highest levels of musical performance. She has discovered ways to use different parts of her body, like her feet, to hear the music.
