Second-grade students at Charles Helmers School learned the rhythms of different countries and brought them together for a giant drum circle Tuesday morning. Each second grade class has been working with musicians from Remo, Inc. for the last week.

The program is one of several outreach programs for grades K-12 coordinated by staff at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons.
