After almost two years, the Percussion Ensemble will be back performing for a live audience. The unique interaction of rhythm and sound color will be explored fully in this concert.  

The spring program will present the melodic, motivic weavings of keyboard percussion in Edge of the World by Nathan Daughtrey, SHELL by Emma O’Halloran, Six by Ivan Trevino, and Ephemera by Francisco Perez.   

The program will feature two soloists with the ensemble. Evan Thompson, graduate student in creative technologies, will perform Tryptich Boom and Baryl Brandt, graduate student in music performance, will perform Concertino for Xylophone
