"The kids, believe it or not, they get into this," said Atlanta Symphony Principle Timpanist Mark Yancich. Yancich is one of two principle timpanists performing in the orchestra.

"They're quiet, they're attentive. It's just a wonderful thing for them. It's a great introduction into a wonderful art form; a living art form," Yancich continued.
