  • Sal Ferreras’ Sizzling Showcase of Westcoast’s Top Musical Talent
Preeminent percussionist Sal Ferreras presents the 31st annual Drum Heat, a concert uniting BC’s top jazz & world music talent to benefit Arts Umbrella students, Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 8pm at the Vogue Theatre. Performing in styles and fusions from the Carribean, Latin America, and Asia, this year’s stellar lineup will ignite the stage with sizzling hot rhythms and harmonies.
 
“To our Vancouver fans, I’m thrilled to announce Drum Heat is back!” says Sal Ferreras, Founder and Conductor of Drum Heat. “For the first time since 2010, we are delighted to bring this electrifying showcase downtown. Audiences will be treated to an irresistible program filled with music in the rich traditions of Brazillian samba, son cubano, Indian tabla, and much more, all to support Arts Umbrella and its mission to inspire creativity in future generations.”
 
As a passionate proponent of artistic collaboration and education, Sal Ferreras staged the first Drum Heat concert in 1986. Since that time, this beloved event’s lineup has expanded to include an eclectic mix of performers. Drum Heat 2017 will feature an impressive list of BC musicians, many of whom are award-winning and in-demand internationally. This year, for the first time, the program will include the powerful, youthful voices of the 20-member Sarabande choir in several captivating collaborations.
 
As part of his work to benefit the community through the arts, Ferreras contributes net proceeds of Drum Heat to directly support Arts Umbrella programs. Three out of five Arts Umbrella students need financial assistance to access arts education. Through the generous support of audiences who attend Drum Heat, the funding from the concert reaches more than 12,000 young people each year.
