Take the Stage was built with the objective of bringing talented young musicians, music-lovers, and community together for the long-lasting interests of music and community. Using the same majestic backdrop and venue as the Women’s Redrock Music Festival, Take the Stage will be held at Robber’s Roost (an outdoor venue).

Youth, ages 12-18, are invited to participate in Brazilian drumming, dance, and song. In addition, participants will learn about Brazilian history and culture, broadening their global perspective. Drums will be provided for each participant during the workshops and performance, in which several ensemble drumming pieces will be performed. A variety of drumming techniques and rhythms will be introduced.
