Congratulations to Leonard Constant, who won the pair of tickets (a $50 value) to hear renowned percussionists Hamid Drake and Jesse Stewart at GigSpace on Friday, March 15. The tickets were donated by the Carleton University School for Studies in Art and Culture: Music.

Drake is considered one the best improvising drummers in the world, playing jazz from Ellington to avant-garde in concerts across Europe and America. Stewart won the 2012 Juno Award for Best Instrumental Album, as part of Stretch Orchestra .

The answer to our skill-testing question "What instruments will Jesse Stewart and Hamid Drake play at this concert?" was "drums" "percussion" or a more detailed version of the these.
