Latin Percussion Performance Techniques for the Orchestral Percussionist
Orchestra Room – Room 1343 – Schoenberg Music Building

Los Angeles based percussionist Brian Kilgore presents a masterclass to teach orchestral Percussionists how to perform with Latin rhythm instruments, especially within the context of recording and orchestral situations. Kilgore's ability to cover all aspects of percussion, from Afro-Cuban rhythms to orchestral percussion, to the extensive use of electronics and exotic sound effects, has made him a first-call player on the Los Angeles recording scene.

In Brian Kilgore's studio career, he has played on over 500 albums, including rock and roll with Daft Punk, Coldplay, Live, Sheryl Crow, Shelby Lynne, Whitney Houston, Starship, Linda Rondstadt, Ricky Martin, Jody Watley, Robbie Nevil, the Goo Goo Dolls, Aerosmith, and Concrete Blonde. Kilgore's diverse career, he has also performed Afro-Cuban salsa with Clare Fischer and Francisco Aguabella, straight-ahead jazz with Terry Trotter, Bill Watrous, Bill Cunliffe, and Bob Florence, jazz fusion with Kirk Whalum, Everette Harp, Dave Koz, Grant Geissman, and Warren Hill, and rap with NWA, P Diddy, and Dr. Dre. His numerous TV/film credits include Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, King Kong, Narnia, Beowulf, Wall-E, Hairspray, Semi-Pro, Pollock, A Bug's Life, Mighty Joe Young, A Perfect Storm, Spiderman II, The Bourne Supremacy, Troy, Van Helsing, I Robot, The Polar Express, Team America, Robots, The Legend of Zorro, Cars, The Longest Yard, and over one hundred more. He has also performed live with Barbra Streisand, Teena Marie, Elton John, Billy Joel, Chaka Khan, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the Los Angeles Master Chorale, and many more.

Kilgore received his Bachelor of Music degree from California State University, Northridge, where he subsequently served on the faculty from 1992-1998.
