ABOUT THE INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC

This Sunday we welcome Eric Reburn, drummer.  Eric is from Portland.  He will be accompanying the prelude, gospel hymn and the postlude.  After Coffee Hour he will lead a short drum circle.  This is fun!  So, come and join with us in exploring percussion in the African drumming style.
