Geisel Library, Seuss Room

National Kazoo Day
Join us in the Seuss Room of Geisel Library at noon on Wednesday, January 28th for a signature study break: National Kazoo Day.

Hear new chamber works for kazoo written by UC San Diego alumni composers. The UCSD Pep Band makes a rare “unplugged” performance (just kazoos!) An animated music score from composer Ryan Ross Smith is premiered. Chuck Perrin (of Dizzy’s) will appear.

Free event. Free kazoo.

The kazoo is more than an annoying party favor. The instrument has serious roots in African ceremonies, masking the voice in a somber effect.

This event is open to the public and all ages are welcome. In the educational component of this show, we’ll use Library online tools to view detailed patent information about the kazoo. We’ll also reveal some surprising kazoo appearances in classical and pop music literature.

And yes, January 28th really is National Kazoo Day.
