Jamey Turner, who has played the glass harp and other unique instruments everywhere from the Old Town Alexandria waterfront to the Tonight Show, Disney World and Kennedy Center, is bringing his unique sound to Spring Hill Elementary School.
Turner will perform three shows for the Spring Hill student body on the cafeteria stage on Thursday, Oct. 24.
The shows are presented by Spring Hill PTO Cultural Arts.
"I saw Jamey perform in Old Town Alexandria and was BLOWN AWAY by the beauty of the sound," Ruth Donahue, the director of Spring Hill's school orchestra, told Patch in an email.
"It’s other-worldly," she said. "Jamey will play all types of music, from classical to rock. This assembly will thrill the kids and inspire them to make their own 'glass harmonicas' with glasses of water at home. Benjamin Franklin invented the concept, by the way."
