ISU Percussion Ensemble Concert

Sunday, November 5th 2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Description

ISU Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. David Collier and Dr. Ben Stiers, will present their fall concert in Kemp Recital Hall on the campus of Illinois State University.

Within the intimacy and communication of chamber groups, the subtle fluctuations and nuance of rhythm and timbre will be explored.  The ensemble will perform four movements from Threads by Paul Lansky. These pieces illuminate the interweaving of both pitched and rhythmic lines.  Also on the program will be the architecturally-inspired Tilted Spheres by Dave Hall, the mallet ensemble Six by Ivan Trevino and Persistence by Brian Blume.

Dr. Matt Jacklin will be the featured guest soloist in Aurora Borealis by John Thrower.  This work for marimba soloist and trio showcases the technical and musical talents of Dr. Jacklin within an energetic flowing groove.  Dr. Jacklin is Professor of Percussion at Olivet Nazarene University and a Vic Firth Artist.

This concert if free and open to the public.
