Sal Ferreras is incredibly well known in the percussion world, especially in Vancouver where his talent stretches beyond performance into the realm of motivational speaking with his TedTalk ‘The Rhythm is going to get you’. Ferreras has long been a longlife supporter of the arts and feels passionate about children from any walk of life having access to them, and he says, “This is why helping Surrey kids access the arts at Arts Umbrella is important”.
