BLOOMSBURG—New York City’s Rhythmics will perform as a part of Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s 2005-06 Celebrity Artist Series Saturday, Oct. 8, at 8 p.m. in Haas Center for the Arts, Mitrani Hall.

The group, made up of nine Broadway and off-Broadway entertainers, performs with percussion instruments created from everyday items, such as traffic cones, buckets, briefcases and hard hats. Known for their street and electronic percussion as well as their hip-hop, break and urban tap dances, Rhythmics’ performers transform an array of sounds into ear-pounding percussion.

Tickets for this performance, offered as part of BU’s Parents and Family Weekend, can be purchased for $25. For program details or tickets, call the box office at (570) 389-4409.
