Multicultural- Other,
Music
With guitar, Indian tabla drum, European octave mandolin, traditional Native American cowhorn rattles and more, Dave leads the audience on a fun-filled musical journey across the world. Children become active participants as they sing along (in English, Nigerian, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Iroquois!), answer questions and act out songs. Some audience members will even be invited to play the Iroquois rattles, and (for groups of 100 or less) all will have a chance to touch and play one of the instruments after the concert. Topics covered include the unique ways in which people around the world live (past and present), and perhaps most importantly, the many similarities that we all share. Dave also talks about his own eye-opening trips to India and the Middle East. -Happiness is being in an audience watching a performance by Dave Ruch! It is a delightful, educational, whimsical and totally fun way to spend a span of time. Rich entertainment of the highest quality and professionalism - Margaret Crocker, Executive Director, The Discovery Center of the Southern Tier, Binghamton NY
