Student Mackenna Tolfa to Join Blue Man Group World Tour
The School of Music congratulates percussionist Mackenna Tolfa (BMus Performance, percussion) who will join the upcoming Blue Man Group World Tour as the role of the DJ, a new featured female drummer for the tour that starts in March 2022. Tolfa is a member of the University of Minnesota percussion studio under Professor Fernando Meza.
"Mackenna's endless curiosity in music is in full display with this appointment to the Blue Man Group! She's never been satisfied with the status quo and is always searching for her voice in the musical arena. Through performing, reading, researching, or composing, she is always thirsty to find out where she fits, and the fact that she has won this coveted position is just an example of that unending curiosity. There is no question in my mind that she will become a huge asset to BMG as she sets off to tour around the world with them next year!" - Professor Fernando Meza
We wish Tolfa all the best next year when she begins the tour.
