percussion and drums
Everyone around the Triangle knows Beverly. Her passion for percussion transcended her Southern roots and has led her on a fantastic journey through many countries and cultures. As a performer, Beverly has worked with Chuck Davis and the African American Dance Ensemble, the American Dance Festival, Sir Roland Hanna, Bud Shank and Tito Puente. Since 1998, Beverly has toured with jazz vocalist Nnenna Freelon, performing in major jazz festivals, clubs and theaters around the world. As a teacher, she is committed to the power of art to educate, heal, enlighten and inspire, and blends percussion, movement and stories through performances for schools and communities. We are blessed to share the joy of music with her.
