Percussion Play Instruments Feature in US Town 'Battle of the Bands'!

Percussion Play have been working with Symphoria - the musician-owned and operated successor to the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra - to create permanent outdoor musical instrument 'stations' in three locations across downtown Syracuse. Two of the sound stops (#SyrSoundStops) have been installed already in Columbus Circle and Lemp Park. The third location will be the Everson Plaza at the Everson Museum.

Started as a partnership between Symphoria and the Connective Corridor, the project has expanded to include the Everson Museum of Art, the SU Setnor School of Music, the City of Syracuse and Onondaga County. Working together, their aim is to distinguish downtown Syracuse as a uniquely creative and collaborative environment, and a fun place to live, work and visit.

Prior to being installed in their final 'homes', Symphoria have been showcasing the instruments around town over the past couple of weeks, demonstrating how our tuned instruments are designed for year-round music-making, are harmonious together, require no prior training or musical knowledge to play, are kid-friendly and ADA accessible.

Now things are getting serious! A musical showdown is taking place between two groups of talented Syracuse University music students.

Playing the Percussion Play instruments at the Syracuse Sound Stop in Columbus Circle, this is Symphoria's first-ever 'Battle of the Bands' and they want YOU to choose a winner. Along with the fame and glory, the winning band will also win Symphoria concert tickets. So, who will take home the prize? Chrome Warriors or Wing Men? You can vote by visiting the Symphoria website and clicking on your favourite!

UPDATE

The winning band of the Syracuse Sound Stops Battle of the Bands contest is: Chrome Warriors!
