Each year Dollywood celebrates its great Festival of Nations, a wonderful event featuring musical and cultural performances from many nations of the world. In 2010, Dollywood had drums and rhythm as its theme, and featured world percussionists and other musicians from France, Peru, Japan, Ecuador, Nova Scotia, Trinidad and Tobago, Zambia and other nations. Bradley Cleveland Services of Cleveland has been a part of the Remo Health Rhythms' health drumming program for some time, and its service recipients were thrilled to be invited by Dollywood to participate as part of the great festival. In a booth entitled “Rhythms of the World,” several service recipients, led by Dr. Corky Alexander, director of music services at Bradley Cleveland, led the festival attendees in drum circles and spontaneous rhythm experiences demonstrating the social, physical and emotional benefits of recreational music making. This took place for the space of a week, at which time thousands of attendees came by the booth and enjoyed the experiences. Bradley Cleveland wants to take this time to thank Dollywood for the great opportunity in which developmentally disabled adults actually functioned as performers at a tremendous international cultural event. Local residents are Dick Leroy, Gary Gentry, and Polly Loudermilk.
