ASU Band Director to Present Marimba Recital
March 22, 2010
The 7:30 p.m. recital inside the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building is open free to the public. The EFA Building is located at 2602 Dena Drive.
McCloud will perform works by major percussion composers including Keiko Abe’s “Prism Rhapsody” and Paul Bissel’s “Alabados Song.” In addition, McCloud will present some of his own works.
The program will exploit the various timbres of the marimba, which is not often in the spotlight. The instrument, similar to the xylophone, uses keys or bars usually made of wood and struck by mallets to produce mellow musical tones.
