Dare to Drum – Documentary & Special Features

Stewart Copeland


Special Features: Full concert performance with the Dallas Symphony: Gamelan D’Drum | Concerto for World Percussion and Orchestra PLUS 65 minute roundtable discussion featuring Stewart Copeland, Chad Smith, Terry Bozzio, John Bryant and host Don Lombardi

Dare to Drum tells the remarkable story of rock star composer Stewart Copeland, drummer for The Police, and his groundbreaking collaboration with D’Drum, a Texas-based world percussion group, and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra with Maestro Jaap van Zweden.

In 2011, after three years of composing, rehearsals, recording sessions, and trips to Bali and Java, “Gamelan D’Drum” a musical synthesis of pitch, rhythm, and orchestration – is ready for its world premiere. But when uncharacteristically cold and icy weather hits Dallas, it threatens to derail their dreams of performing the creative masterpiece with the Dallas Symphony.
