Eastern Percussion Ensemble to Perform

Written by Kate Harner

Willimantic, CT -- Eastern Connecticut State University's Percussion Ensemble will perform a concert at 2:30 p.m. on May 8 in Shafer Auditorium. The public is invited. Admission is free.

Jeff Calissi, assistant professor of music, will conduct the concert. Pieces that will be performed include Chris Brooks' "Stick Schtick," which uses six-and-a-half foot poles played in the style of the off-Broadway group Stomp; and "Wood, Metal and Skin" by Josh Gottry, which utilizes materials of instruments rather than specific recommendations. The concert will also feature works by contemporary percussion ensemble composers such as Steve Reich and his minimalist piece, "Clapping Music," as well as "Suite for Drumset and Percussion Ensemble" by Dave Mancini, featuring current Eastern senior Chris Loveland  as the drumset performer.
