PAS Hall of Fame
The Percussive Arts Society (www.pas.org) is the largest network of percussionists around the world. The Society publishes Percussive Notes, Percussion News, and the PAS Online Research Journal. Headquartered in Indianapolis, IN., the Society fosters growth in the art of drumming through workshops, concerts, and festivals. Its new museum "Rhythm! Discovery Center"will open this month on November 21st. Each year PAS inducts new members into its Hall of Fame. Induction is the highest honor given to individuals whose careers have had a significant impact on percussion performance, education and research. This month French percussionist Jacques Delecluse and Mickey Hart were celebrated as the newest PAS Hall of Fame inductees.
