“Buzz” over to the Seuss Room at 7:30 p.m. on January 28 for a signature study break: National Kazoo Day. You’ll be surprised to find that this common, often labeled “annoying,” party favor carries a rich history, dating back hundreds of years when it was first used to mask voices in African ceremonial rituals. Its popularity in America started in the late 1800’s and it has since made its way into mainstream music (think Pink Floyd’s Corporal Clegg).
At the event, hear new chamber works for Kazoo composed by UC San Diego alums and learn more about the history of this legitimate musical instrument. You’ll even walk away with a FREE kazoo!
