According to its musicians, a percussionist is not limited to playing the drums, the bells or even whistles. Instead, this group focuses on nontraditional ways to create sound, such as grinding pencils in a blender or plugging a Slinky into an amp.

Chop, stir, pour, whirrrrr. The kitchen in the Fields Center at Princeton was a whirl of activity Dec. 7 as local middle- and high-school students worked together to prepare drinks, appetizers and desserts for the Pace Center for Civic Engagement's second Community House Family Dinner. The Family Dinner series, launched in October, aims to bring Community House volunteers, students and families together over a meal, family-friendly activities and conversation as a new way to bolster Community House's mission of standing with families to close the achievement gap in the town of Princeton.
