Check out this cool Covid collaboration between Juilliard’s Percussion Preparatory Division, Juilliard Dance, WHIN and composer Kendall Williams.

Gilberto Moretti-Hamilton said. “As percussionists, we have to play as one—we have to feel the same pulse, the same rhythm, the same feeling. Being in person and being able to see the person right next to you and play together—we were able to communicate and connect.”
