7:30 PM Music: Percussion Lovefest San Diego Symphony will hold its third annual festival by exploring the world of rhythm, sound and place through percussion as part of a month-long celebration entitled "It's About Time," which is curated by percussionist, conductor, author and University of California San Diego professor Steven Schick. Working with several of San Diego's performing arts organizations, the festival is about the myriad of ways percussion music connects us to the world and to nature. Planning is underway for the festival to move beyond the concert hall, including an outdoor performance of John Luther Adams' "Inuksuit" at the US/Mexico border.

"Percussion Lovefest" features San Diego surfing on waves of rhythm. As an international city, its percussionists are as varied as its citizens. Join us for three special Thursday events at Bread and Salt as Bonnie Wright's Fresh Sound series showcases local percussion talent from jazz drummers to symphonic musicians to old-style marching music, and from Brazil to Africa to the Americas. Curated by Duncan Moore and Steven Schick.
