Evelyn Glennie

Dame Evelyn Glennie, born Evelyn Elizabeth Ann Glennie on July 19, 1965 in Aberdeen, Scotland, is a Scottish virtuoso percussionist. Glennie has been profoundly deaf since age 11.

In 2004, a documentary film, Touch the Sound: A Sound Journey with Evelyn Glennie, follows percussionist Evelyn Glennie, who is nearly deaf, as she explores the connections among sound, rhythm, time, and the body.
