Percussion Ensemble to Perform Fall Concert Nov. 7


The Truman Concert Percussion Ensemble I will present its fall concert at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 7 in Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall.

The program, entitled “Women in Percussion - A Celebration of Composers,” will feature the music of women who have helped shape the landscape of contemporary percussion ensemble music. The performance will include two of the earliest concert works for percussion ensemble, Johanna Beyer’s “March” and “Opus 14” composed in 1939. Other compositions by Emma O’Halloran, Juri Seo, Andrea Venet and Alyanna Woods will also be performed, as well as a new work by Mary Ellen Childs, commissioned for the Truman Percussion Ensemble and featured at the North Star Music Festival that took place on campus last month.  

The ensemble is directed by Michael Bump, professor of music and director of percussion studies. Admission is free. For more information, contact Bump at
