ASU Brass, Concert Percussion Ensembles to Perform April 3
The Angelo State University Brass and Concert Percussion Ensembles will present their annual Spring Concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 3, in the University Auditorium.
The concert, featuring a wide variety of music styles, performing groups and cutting-edge visuals, is free to the public.
Music by the ASU Concert Percussion Ensemble will reflect the unusual trends in world percussion as musicians are utilizing tubes, water bottles and interactive movies to produce pure rhythmic fun. The Concert Percussion Ensemble, directed by Dr. Douglas Overmier, will show how these trends are producing lively music. Previous percussion concerts have been promoted for fans to "expect the unexpected," but this spring's performance will go beyond that for an unusual and memorable musical experience.
Renaissance dances, a glorious Baroque trumpet tune, the massive sounds of Wagner, 20th-century brass ensemble works and jazzy contemporary pieces fill out the program for the Brass Ensemble. This large ensemble of brass and percussion instruments performs throughout the year for many events on and off campus. Under the direction of Dr. John Irish, the ensemble will perform some of the most engaging pieces in their repertoire during the concert.
