KSC Ensemble Percussion Concert
Time: 7:30 PM
Place: Keene State College, Alumni Recital Hall, Redferns Art Center
Price: $5 and $10
Let the Keene State College Percussion Ensemble take you on a chronological tour of early American percussion ensemble music from 1929-1941. Works to be performed in order of composition are Amadeo Roldán's Ritmicas No. 5 & 6, Edgard Varèse's Ionisation, Henry Cowell's Ostinato Pianissimo, John Cage's Living Room Music, and Lou Harrison's Labyrinth No. 3. These works represent a select group of 20th-Century composers who scored original works for percussion ensemble in search of new sounds. In this search for new sound, they created the foundation for the modern percussion ensemble. The pieces are scored from 4 to 13 players and take advantage of a wide array of instruments from the standard drums, cymbals, and gongs to the not so standard rice bowls, glasses, bottles, handsaws, playing cards and magazines. Please join us for this rare opportunity to hear this classic literature performed consecutively.
