It was an spectacular event!!! I had never drummed before and it was a therapy for the soul!!!
I highly recommend attending since it is a unique event not only for the drumming but the energies shared!!!
See you next year!!!!
I have attended all of the drumstrong events and have participated as both a volunteer and drummer. The magic of this event is hard to describe. I come away each year with a sense of being part of something wonderful.
The two signature events in 2009 by DrumsForCures raised awareness locally in Charlotte and around the world, about cancer education and raised funds for research. The Not So Silent Auction early this year combined live auction, silent auction, music performances and an extraordinary jam session. The drumSTRONG event - 27 hours of drumming and so much more - brought people together during the May weekend and raised awareness and funds to support the DrumsForCures mission.
