As part of the celebration of the fall season, the Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry will have a Tin Can Poem Drum Contest. Make a drum from a tin can and come drum it in a rhythm circle at Autumn Movement with us!
You have two opportunities to enter the contest on two different days:
Friday, Sept. 25
Pipe Springs Park
After homecoming parade
Follow the ROMP homecoming float after the parade out to Pipe Springs Park and join in the jam session. Drums will be viewed and prizes awarded at the end of the jam session. You can also bring a “real” musical instrument of any kind to participate. The jam session will be facilitated by master drummer River Roberts, a special guest from Chicago to the Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry.
If you can’t attend on Friday, bring your drum out for a contest at the museum the next day:
Saturday, Sept. 26
Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry
Museum tours at 5:00, a drum workshop at 6:00, folk dancing at 7:00, and a drum circle at 8:00 are the events planned. Drums will be judged and prizes awarded at 6:45.
