Fall Percussion Concert Features Exotic Instruments

A wide variety of percussion instruments will highlight the annual Fall Percussion Sampler at 8 p.m. Nov. 7 in Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall.  

Michael Bump, professor of percussion studies, will direct Truman’s Concert Percussion Ensemble I and oversee performances by the Statesmen Marching Percussion Ensemble, instructed by percussion students Ben Barker, Andrew Brogan, Brett Morris and Marcus Rattler-Blevins. The program will feature a wide selection of percussion music, from large-scale percussion orchestra to chamber works, performed on traditional percussion instruments as well as exotic instruments such as Sulawesian reed flute, Thailanese gongs, wooden spoons and toy trumpets. This concert is sponsored by the Department of Music and is free and open to the public. A live stream of the event will be available here.
