Remo Inc. will open a new Remo Recreational Music Center in Valencia, Calif., on Feb. 6. The Remo Music Center is a place where people from all walks of life, of all ages, with or without a musical background, can experience making music with others in a welcoming, friendly, non-challenging environment.
On Jan. 9, Remo Inc. invited members of the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce, Santa Clarita City Council, local school districts, College of the Canyons Foundation, Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, friends and family to a Ribbon Cutting event at the new Remo Music Center. Cheryl Ramirez from the SCV Chamber of Commerce led the event and introduced Brock Kaericher, Remo President, and Remo owner Dr. Ami Belli, while everyone enjoyed refreshments.
“Twenty-one years ago, Remo Inc. was out-growing its facility in North Hollywood, Calif. and consequently we broke ground for our 220,000-square-foot-facility here in Santa Clarita. We are so pleased to be able to now bring our Remo Music Center here,” said Kaericher.
Dr. Belli also spoke about how grateful she was for the talented and hardworking Remo folks that made the new Remo Music Center possible. “Remo always said, you need a place for drummers to drum. I look forward to seeing our community connecting through the power of rhythm,” she said.
Several representatives from the city, state and county presented Kaericher and Belli with Certificates of Recognition and Congratulations.
Immediately following the formalities everyone gathered in a drum circle to experience the joy in drumming. Mike DeMenno, manager of Remo Music Center, Chalo Eduardo, manager of World Percussion Products, and John Fitzgerald, manager of Recreational Music Activities, took turns facilitating the drum circle with great enthusiasm.
