Listen to the Beat: Percussion at Utah State University
Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012
The Utah State University Percussion Ensemble and the Caine Percussion Ensemble present their annual fall concert Monday, Nov. 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the Kent Concert Hall, located in the Chase Fine Arts Center.
“This concert is exciting due to the incredibly diverse array of music,” said Jason Nicholson, assistant professor of percussion in the Caine College of the Arts.
The pieces to be performed range from large percussion ensembles to a group of non-pitched percussion instruments. A wide variety of musical tastes will be presented in this concert, with something for everyone to enjoy, said Nicholson.
The students in the USU Percussion Ensemble include both music majors and non-majors. The Caine Percussion Ensemble is made up of five percussion majors who auditioned for the group. Members of the Caine Percussion Ensemble receive a scholarship funded by the Marie Eccles Caine Foundation—Russell Family.
Tickets are $10 general admission, $8 seniors and youth, $5 USU faculty and staff and free for USU students with ID.
