Dame Evelyn Glennie
Evelyn Glennie is the first person in musical history to successfully create and sustain a full-time career as a solo percussionist. As one of the most eclectic and innovative musicians on the scene today, she is constantly redefining the goals and expectations of percussion. By combining superb technique, a profound appreciation of the visual, and her astonishing musicality, Glennie creates performances of such vitality that they almost constitute a new type of performance.
