Casper College Percussion And Jazz Present Contemporary Concert
The Casper College Percussion Group and Casper College Jazz Combo will be in concert on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Wheeler Concert Hall.
Under the direction of Ron Coulter, both groups will perform a selection of contemporary works. Commenting about the concert itself, Coulter noted that
“the audience will get to see dozens of percussion instruments on stage from around the world and they'll get to hear music that is rarely performed, most of it unrecorded, and some that will be created in the moment in front of them that sounds like nothing they've ever heard.”
The Casper College Percussion Group will "present an arrangement of a popular Radiohead song, the rarely performed electro-acoustic composition “Pendulum Music” by Steve Reich, along with several other compositions,” said Coulter. The Casper College Jazz Combo will present “original compositions by the group's members and free improvisations and jazz music of the free jazz and free improvisation practices developed by such groups as the AACM, AMM, Art Ensemble of Chicago, and others.”
The percussion group is comprised of Casper College students Dyllon Boyer, Kasey Stewart, and David Trevino. Boyer joins John May and Tim Winckler for the jazz combo.
The concert is free and open to the public. The Wheeler Concert Hall is located in the Music Building on the Casper College campus.
