As expected, all participants of the Zildjian Workshop on Saturday, May 21st at the Cardoso & Conceição Auditorium were surprised by the presentation of Anders Astrand and the wonderful universe of Zildjian Orchestral and Marching cymbals and accessories.
Percussionists, conductors, bandmasters, and students didn't refrain from admitting that they didn't know many of the techniques that Anders exemplified and taught. In the end, they said that the knowledge acquired in this Workshop will be a very useful tool for their activities, both as musicians and as directors.
Besides the remarkable way of transmitting knowledge, Anders brought with him a vast range of Zildjian cymbals for demonstration so that participants could listen, try, and understand the differences between each cymbal and the several applications they are suited for.
This event was made possible thanks to the commitment of specialized dealers Russomúsica and Cardoso & Conceição.
