Dec. 4: Percussion Concert
The Augustana Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. John Pennington, will present its fall concert at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 4, in Kresge Recital Hall.
The concert will feature selections from the 2013 Varieties program as well as Handel’s "Harmonious Blacksmith"; Music for Lighters “Vous avez du feu?”; and an exciting new work titled "Over the Edge for Percussion Trio," which will feature some remarkable rudimental drumming. The centerpiece of the program is a work by Russell Hartenberger titled "The Invisible Proverb" that depicts an ancient African myth through music written for five keyboard instruments.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors, and are free for students K-12 and those with an Augustana ID. Tickets are available online.
