In February 2016 I was invited to collaborate with The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) as an artist in residence. I worked with the HVCCA’s Director of Education to create a two-week in-school program for The Summit Academy in Peekskill, NY. During that time I met with the students daily to work on rhythmic and performance exercises, plus share leadership skills, eventually creating a drumming piece that they had the chance to show during an assembly.
“Watching the students work with a talented artist like Michael Feigenbaum is so special and unique. They have been so receptive and participatory, it’s really beautiful to witness! Michael has been doing such a stellar job.”
