Percussion Ensemble

Sunday, April 14th 2019
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
$6 – $10

Event Description

ISU Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. David Collier and Dr. Ben Stiers, will present their spring concert in the Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of Illinois State University.

The warmth and beauty of melodic percussion is explored as the ensemble performs works showcasing marimba and vibraphone.  The beautiful interweaving of rhythmic melodic lines is found in both A Feeling of Coming Home by Victor LaBozzetta III and Bend by Peter Martin.

Venturing into a sonically different world is Bioluminescence by ISU faculty member Roger Zare. This “world premier” work features graduate student Matt James on vibraphone combined with the ethereal sounds of multiple triangles.  It is definitely intriguing!

The program will open the flowing sounds of A Ceiling Full of Stars by Blake Tyson.

Matt James will also be featured Home Trilogy by Michael Burritt and in his own work Above.

Tickets are available at the CPA Box Office.
