Collision of Rhythm - November 11, 2021

Get ready for a richly explosive experience like nothing else out there — rhythm centered, but full of melodic movement and dynamic depth. This duo includes tap-dancing classical virtuoso Aaron Williams and beatbox-juggling keynote speaker Bronkar Lee. 

Attendance at this concert will be limited to members who have already purchased tickets for the previously cancelled season.

Aaron and Bronkar have worked with companies like GoPro, Coca Cola, and Google, and have been featured on “The Tonight Show,” “America’s Got Talent,” and Superbowl commercials. Both have achieved internet fame with “rhythmic” viral videos — Aaron, through his virtuosic rendition of Mario on Marimba (over 100 million views), and Bronkar, as the Beatbox Dad, through a video of him beatboxing with his son (over 200 million views).

Aaron and Bronkar first performed together onstage in a completely improvised moment during a TEDx event in Hollywood in 2013. They met backstage and knew they were musical soul brothers. Since then, they’ve performed entertainment shows, led educational outreach workshops, and given keynotes on collaboration and teamwork across the U.S.

Though there are only two of them, Collision of Rhythm fills the stage as a 12-person ensemble would, moving from instrument to instrument with skill and diversity. With drumming, tap dancing, rhythmic juggling, marimba, piano, saxophone, flute and so much more, the show has been described as “Stomp meets Blue Man meets Cirque du Soleil.” The pure joy that music and rhythm has instilled within these two humans is extended to every audience member throughout the performance. Between choreographed musical pieces, there is audience interaction, humor, and personal stories that make this show all at once captivating, inspiring, and flat-out extraordinary.
