Grinnell, Iowa -  

Organized Rhythm will bring their unorthodox combination of percussion and organ to Grinnell College in a free concert on Tuesday, Feb. 18. The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in Herrick Chapel. The event is open to the public at no charge; free tickets are required.

Organized Rhythm is the result of an unusual partnership between Clive Driskill-Smith, the young English organist sensation, and American percussion virtuoso Joseph Gramley. Driskell-Smith is one of the leading organists of his generation, a young master of his art; and multi-percussionist Gramley’s performance is by equal turns athletic and brilliant. This is another opportunity to hear Herrick Chapel’s historic Aeolian Skinner organ played by a master.

Tickets are required for this free public performance, and may be obtained at the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts box office, beginning Thursday, February 13, noon to 5 p.m. A limited number of tickets are also available beginning at noon February 13 at the Pioneer Bookshop in downtown Grinnell.

Herrick Chapel is located at 1128 Park St., with parking available along the street in front of the venue and in nearby parking lots. Grinnell welcomes the participation of people with disabilities. Information on parking and accessibility is available on the college website, here: http://www.grinnell.edu/app/wermap.html.  Accommodation requests may be made to Conference Operations at 641-269-3235 or calendar@grinnell.edu
