World Beets Percussion Ensemble
World Beets Percussion Ensemble (WBPE) was begun in the fall of 2012, with the intent to create a community drumming ensemble in the Greater Wayland/Framingham/Natick area. Founder Martin Case, with the help of members Janet Drake, Susan Donnell, and Melanie Zoltan, created the ensemble with the specific intent of gathering local residents and creating an ensemble that would be community supportive, through private and group lessons, and civically engaged, by performing in concerts and events.
"Using music as a conduit, World Beets Percussion Ensemble (WBPE) is dedicated to creating awareness to causes that affect our world. Through private/group lessons and public performance WBPE is dedicated to sharing this experience of community music making with our neighbors and the larger world. " WBPE Mission Statement
