Feb 27, 2019

Kat Epple, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning composer and flutist, will perform at the Marco Island Historical Society for its 25th Anniversary celebration on March 5, in an event called “Calusa-Inspired Music & Storytelling.” The celebration features the permanent exhibit called “Paradise Found: 6,000 Years of People on Marco Island,” where Pre-Columbian artifacts discovered on the island are showcased. Epple joins us to play some of the Calusa-inspired music she composed that's part of the immersive exhibit, for which she used a conch shell, horn, bird-bone flute and wooden percussion.
