Frostburg State University’s Percussion Ensemble will perform its fall concert on Thursday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The concert is free and open to the public.
The concert will begin with Bradley Slayter’s “Breakdown,” which the composer calls a contrast of timbres with a “groove constant.” The next selection will be “Impetus” by David J. Long, featuring a variety of drums, with a dash of keyboard percussion for added aural “flavor.” The group will follow that with “Double Shot” by Pete Zambito, a work including soca and samba sections that suggest a Caribbean getaway. Also included will be “One-Eyed Jacks” by Mark Ford and “Tango Argentino” by Joaquin Valverde, which whisks the audience off to an early spring in Buenos Aires, the birthplace of this dance form. Xylophone soloist Matthew Hunter Green will be featured on Joe Green’s popular work, “Xylophonia.” The program will conclude with a Western take on Indonesian music in James Campbell’s “Batik.”
