Music at Butler: Butler University Percussion Ensemble
The Butler University Percussion Ensemble presents the first of its two fall-semester concerts featuring the talents of the Butler percussion studio. Listeners will be immersed in a world of intricate patterns, sounds, and textures – from bowed vibraphones, chiming flowerpots, marimbas, triangles, electronic grooves, and drums of all kinds. Directed by Artist-in-Residence Jon Crabiel, the program presents works by American composers – Ivan Trevino, Devonté Hynes, Victor LaBozzetta III, Robert Dillon, and William Duckworth – all at the cutting edge of contemporary music. The performance will also include Afro-Cuban drumming featuring an arrangement of the Latin Jazz standard Afro-Blue by legendary Cuban percussionist and bandleader, Mongo Santamaria.
This performance is free and open to the public, no ticket is required.
Masks are strongly encouraged to be worn by all patrons while in the venue.
