The Louisville Leopard Percussionists have done it again. After last years medley of ‘Check Yes Juliet’ by my good friends in the band We The Kings and ‘Happy’ by Farrell Williams, they’ve decided to take on one of the greatest bands of all time! This puts the biggest smile on my face.
We hear so many stories of music programs dying, it’s very refreshing to see what the Louisville Leopard Percussionists are doing. The passion and sheer joy that you see in these kids, while they are playing their instrument is priceless. The performing ensemble is made of 50+ kids, ages 7-12. Every student learns how to play instruments such as marimbas, xylophone, vibraphone, drum set, timbales, congas, bongos and piano.
I hope to hear and share more about the future of our music programs, but for now, please enjoy this amazing video.
