March Afternoon Sabbatical
Percussion Á La Carte
Dr. Christopher H. Fashun, assistant professor of music and Ben Runkel, percussionDuring the first half of the 20thcentury, composers turned to the field of percussion because of the endless possibilities of experimentation and sounds. Percussionists soon established their own solo and chamber repertoire. Western Classical tradition opened to sounds of world percussion and other cultures as well as various combinations with non-percussion voices. Percussion Á la Carte is exactly what is says - an afternoon of sound combinations that include both Western and Brazilian percussion.
