The 4th Annual An Evening of Percussion, a concert put on by the Canton High School Percussion Ensemble, will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday April 22, 2016 in the High School auditorium.  The concert will contain pieces across a wide range of musical styles performed by the High School Percussion Ensemble as well as featured pieces by the 7th and 8th grade percussion classes and the High School advanced percussion class.

Under the direction of Artist in Residence Bob Rush, the Canton High School Percussion Ensemble has put on An Evening of Percussion for the past 3 years, growing each year as it has attracted greater audiences to appreciate the wonders and beauty of percussion music.

This year’s program promises to accommodate practically any and all musical cravings, including some standard repertoire from composers Alexander Lepak and  Alice Gomez, as well as dual composer and mathematician Stephen Reich. The Middle School percussion classes will be featured on pieces by Ralph Hicks and a more contemporary selection by Sting as well as helping out on the evening’s Caribbean-style grand finale, “Wildwood” by Matt Bissonette.  Opposite ends of the musical spectrum round out the evening’s program with Bob Rush’s original arrangement of Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays’ “Tell It All” from First Circle, “The Rock Syndicate,” a piece for Body Percussion by Murray Houliff, and timeless classic, Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings,” transcribed for Marimbas.

I hope that you are able to accept this invitation and look forward to seeing you at the concert.  There will be no charge for admission at the door but be sure to arrive a little early to check out the Percussion Petting Zoo in the lobby that will represent a vast selection of percussion instruments.
