UW Percussion Ensemble to Perform April 18

April 11, 2013

The University of Wyoming Department of Music Percussion Ensemble will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 18, in the Fine Arts concert hall. Admission is free and open to the public.

The program will feature guest artists Kurt Gartner, percussion professor from Kansas State University; and Steve Riley, percussion professor at Baker University. Gartner is an expert on the malletKAT, an electronic percussion instrument, and Riley is a professional percussionist in Kansas City. He also is an award-winning composer.

The ensemble, which is composed of marimbas, xylophones, vibraphones, timpani, and various other drums and percussion instruments, will perform “Magnum Opus,” made famous by the rock group Kansas; a Latin version of Herbie Hancock’s “Maiden Voyage”; and works that employ odd techniques, such as gargling water and singing at the same time.

For more information, contact Steve Barnhart, UW Department of Music professor, at (307) 766-5030.
