Härnösands slagverksensemble is an ensemble who consists of students at Härnösand’s Gymnasium and Härnösand Folkhögskola. The ensemble has played to full houses for over 30 years and has become a beloved cultural institution in the county. 31 young sharp musicians and a truckload of percussion instruments are visiting Urkult to offer a powerful drumconsert that makes the ground shake. The ensemble offers deep overtone-rich sounds from the Gong and Tamtam, the glittery sound of the windchimes, thunderlike vibrations from the large bass drums, warm tones from the marimbas and cold from the Vibraphones. This unique soundscape with it’s evocative rhythms offers a concert with depths, humor and above all ENERGY. Over 25 years have passed since the ensemble played at Urkult, this year it’s finally time again!
