So Percussion, a contemporary music group based out of Brooklyn, has brought their eclectic style to the University of Dayton campus this week. This unique percussion ensemble will offer a free workshop and jam session tonight at the ArtStreet amphitheatre, from 7 – 9 pm. And for the whole nine yards, get your tickets for Thursday’s concert, to be held at UD’s Boll Theatre at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 general admission; $10 for seniors, students and University of Dayton alumni, faculty and staff; and $5 for University of Dayton students. Tickets are available in advance through the University of Dayton box office in Kennedy Union at 937-229-2545. The concert is presented as part of the University of Dayton Arts Series.
The ensemble is known for their use of a wide range of materials; in addition to traditional drums and marimbas, anything from steel pipes to hair clippers to dry ice are fair game for their sonic repertoire. In fact, there are currently 300 dowel rods in the ArtStreet office in preparation for tonight’s workshop. I hear there will even be a cactus featured during the concert. What will they be doing with it? Playing it, of course:
