The annual Fall Percussion Ensemble Concert, which will be held Friday, Oct. 11, at the West Virginia University Creative Arts Center, will feature a mix of music from different cultures.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre.

“Almost every piece on the concert represents a different ethnic culture and the music of that culture,” said Director George Willis.

“Our Percussion Ensemble will use a vast array of instruments to represent music from India, Indonesia, Brazil, and parts of Asia.”

The soloist will be Kristopher Grant, who is working on his doctoral degree in percussion at WVU. He will be performing a very challenging work called “Coyote Dreams” by Michael Udow.

“The entire Percussion Department will be on display throughout the program and will surely impress even the most sophisticated listener,” Willis said.

Tickets for the Percussion Ensemble Concert are available at the Mountainlair and Creative Arts Center Box Offices or by calling 304-293-SHOW.
