Drumlines from South Carolina State, Winston Salem State and North Carolina A&T will march into Coastal Carolina University's HTC Center for the TEMPO 54 Drumline Showcase on Saturday, March 23, at 4 p.m. The showcase is open to the public, with the purchase of a ticket.
The three college drumlines will give freestyle performances, including drumstick tricks and acrobatic movements of their instruments. The Golden Delight, NC A&T's auxiliary dance team, is also scheduled to perform.
"It's an event that should appeal to people of all ages," says Robert Harris, one of the event's coordinators.
Tempo 54 is sponsored by CCU's Office of Multicultural Student Services. Tickets may be purchased at the Wheelwright Box Office or at Ticketreturn.com. CCU students and children ages 10 and under are $5. Adults and ages 11 and up are $7.
