Boris Sichon brings his unforgettable Rhythm Fest Project to Vanguard Community School Sept. 12 as part of OSAC’s Junior Concerts series, teaching disciplines of rhythm and movement coordination using body drumming, verbal notation, clapping, snapping fingers and using various instruments such as Irish Bones, the Didgeridoo and the Drum-table.
Students will also create and play musical instruments using recycled materials such as plastic bottles, cans, as well as natural elements like stone and wood. The program culminates in a grand finale concert where the children perform for their school, accompanied by Boris.
Boris was born in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine. Since coming to Canada in 2004, Boris has performed with Pavlo, Uzume Taiko, Yungchen Lhamo and many other musicians. He has also performed at numerous festivals across BC and his solo performance Around the World with Boris, has been performed for dozens of elementary schools. Samples of his music can be heard at his website at www.sichon.com.
