Ongoing, Performing with the Zograf Quartet
Zograf String Quartet is a non-profit organization dedicated to paying forward our passion for chamber music by donating already performed programs to an economically underprivileged or socially disadvantaged group of people for either a symbolic fee, or completely free of charge. We operate under the basic philosophy that music is not just a necessary positive force in our culture, but it is also the pulse and lifeblood that connects other art forms. Our performances regularly feature artists working in other mediums such as painters, dancers, and poets, who enhance every performance and make for a unique audience experience. View the videos.
Meditative Drumming Workshops with Shannon O’Brien
Most recently, Ben has aligned himself with several others offering workshops in mindfulness meditation, controlled breathing and guided visualizations. Meditative Drumming Workshops is the brainchild of Shannon O’Brien, a certified mindfulness meditation teacher, yogi, composer and multi-instrumentalist in San Diego. Shannon has written and performed for dance, theatre, African ensembles, rock bands, and orchestral ensembles across the country. He originally created Meditative Drumming Workshops to help bridge principles of “mindfulness meditation” into practical examples that can be applied and understood within a group context. The sound of Ben’s cello brings another dimension to Shannon’s drumming work, and together they are offering work groups of all kinds an opportunity to take their team development work into a new dimension. Contact us for more information, or to schedule a workshop.
