Percussion concert Tuesday
Minot State University Percussion Ensemble and Marimba Ensemble will join with special guests the Magi Drum Line to present a concert Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall, Minot State University.
This is the final concert of the semester for the MSU groups, which are under the direction of Avis Veikley. The Magi Drum Line is an extracurricular group of Minot and area high school students, managed by MSU student Jonathan Haskins.
The program will feature established percussion ensemble repertoire such as “Ogoun Badagris” by Christopher Rouse and Thomas Gauger’s classic “Gainsborough,” as well as the newly published “This One Day” by Josh Gottry. The Marimba Ensemble will perform the first movement of Antonin Dvorak’s “String Quartet No. 10 in E Flat Major,” and Clair Omar Musser’s arrangement of “Bolero” by Eustasio Rosales. The Magi Drum Line will present a series of short cadences by composers Pollard, Crockarell, Brooks, Hostetter and Byars.
The program is free and open to the public. Parking on the MSU campus is unrestricted after 5 p.m.
