On October 13, 2002 in Campinas and October 14 in Rio de Janeiro, Dr. Stuart Marrs participated as a soloist and clinician for the Brazil Day of Percussion, Brazil PAS Chapter President Fernando Hashimoto, host. (Front, right in photo.)
Marrs delivered two clinics at the Campinas (UNICAMP) site: one on percussion accessories -- cymbals, tambourine, and triangle; and one on timpani.
Dr. Marrs performed as solo timpanist in the Beck Concerto for Timpani and Percussion Ensemble accompanied by GRUPU - Grupo de Percussão da UNICAMP under the able direction of Prof. Fernando Hashimoto.
In addition to enjoying the fine hospitality provided by my host, Prof. Fernando Hashimoto, who took a few hours to show us around his home town of Rio de Janeiro, I had the pleasure and privilage of getting to know fellow clinician at the festival, vibraphonist Anders Astrand from Sweden.
