Spring concert series opens at Petroglyphe Gallery

By From page B5 | March 22, 2013

Percussionist Allen Biggs will perform on Sunday, March 24 as part of Petroglyphe Gallery’s Spring Sunday Fine Art Concert Series.

Biggs is the percussionist for Wicked in San Francisco. In that capacity he plays 48 instruments. He is also principal percussionist for the Santa Rosa Symphony, and has played in that orchestra for more than 25 years and has performed with the California Symphony for 23 years.

Biggs plays drums in the funk/jazz band Jamalicious and is an instructor at California State University, San Francisco.

Music from all over the world continues to fascinate him, as does the intersection of sound, noise and music. Biggs will be playing the marimba during his performance at Petroglyphe Gallery and has promised to also bring some unusual instruments to encourage audience participation. Virtually anything he can get his hands on becomes a musical instrument.

Tickets for limited seating are available for $21 in advance and if available $23 at the door. This unique musical event will be preceded by a reception with light appetizers and wine to be served from 3:30 p.m. until the performance begins at 4 p.m. and conclude around 6 p.m.

Regular hours at the Petroglyphe Gallery are Thursdays through Saturdays 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sundays 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Petroglyphe Gallery is located at 8317 Main St. in Mokelumne Hill.
