Percussion Ensemble Concert
Under the direction of Mark Dorr, the Waldorf University Percussion Ensemble's concert program will encompass a variety of international musical styles and composers.
The program will include internationally renowned composer John Beck’s Overture for Percussion Ensemble; a groovin’ Samba by Mitchell Peters; the haunting, contemporary work October Mountain by American composer Alan Hovhaness; Carol of the Bells arranged in a Salsa style; and Mark Ford’s Head Talk using drum heads in ways never imagined! Isaac Agar will be the featured dramatic bass drum soloist during Concertino on a Well-Known Rustic Air. The Percussion Skills class from Waldorf University will join in the fun to perform the ever-popular Snares, Traps, and Other Hunting Devices by Thomas L. Davis. Santa’s Latin Gig will conclude the program with a Cha-cha version of Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
Plan to attend this event with your friends and family for some great music, fun activities and surprise special performers and guests!
The concert is free and open to the public. At the conclusion of the performance, there will be an “instrument petting zoo” where children can ask questions and try out percussion instruments. Adult supervision at the zoo is required.
