Pavilion Spotlight: STOMPing out hunger

Posted: Updated:

Their little faces were full of expression - wonder and happiness. STOMP had captivated their hearts.

"I love it, man. So much fun, get to be me on stage everyday. I get to be other aspects of me," said STOMP cast member Andre Fernandez.

Fernandez has been touring with STOMP for fifteen years. He says the show changes every night the improvisation is what keeps everyone craving more beats.

"They play instruments without real instruments," said Megan Gropel, a student at Journey Elementary School.

"(We play) brooms, poles, trash cans, a kitchen sink. We take music from the mundane, all different sounds from everyday," said Hernandez.

STOMP has partnered with food banks across the country to STOMP out hunger.

"You have to give to receive. It's giving to the community, giving to the kids, and giving to the food bank," said Hernandez.

These little cuties from Harrisburg raised $1,500 for Feeding South Dakota.

"That makes me feel great," said Gropel.

Stomping out hunger is music to everyone's ears.
