Don Liuzzi, left, chief timpanist and percussion chair for the Philadelphia Symphony, teaches approaches to drum rolls on the snare drum to Bellefontaine Middle School percussionists Wednesday during a visit by the DePue Brothers Band throughout the day with Bellefontaine High School and Middle School orchestra members and BMS eighth-grade band members. The musical ensemble also performs for Benjamin Logan Elementary School students today and conducts a workshop with Benjamin Logan High School band members prior to A Magical Grassical Christmas concert at 7 p.m. tonight at the Holland Theatre, where tickets are still available for $25 to $40. The DePue Brothers are highly celebrated group of four brothers originally from Bowling Green who have pursued professional careers as violinists. The ensemble is now eight members deep and also represents the Indianapolis Symphony and some of the top touring bluegrass bands. The local school performances were made possible by the Bellefontaine Rotary Club, Logan County Electric Cooperative and the Flo Ann Easton Sours Grant. (CHRIS WESTHOFF PHOTO)
