Percussion Ensemble Spring Concert

Apr 13 2016 - 7:30pm
Location: 
Max Noah Recital Hall

On Wednesday, April 13, 2016, the Georgia College Percussion Ensemble will be performing their spring concert at 7:30 p.m. in Max Noah Recital Hall. 

“The ensemble will perform an eclectic mix of works inspired by different areas of the world plus an electronic piece evoking an alien landscape,” said Ryan Smith, director.

The performance will include the following works: Gene Koshinski’s “Streamline” (2011), Paul Stanhope’s, “Little Morning Star” (1994), William Susman’s “Waves” (1983), Ron Coulter’s “Jam Box” (2007), Kevin Bobo’s “Hemisphere’s” (2008) and Nathan Daughtrey’s “Power Struggle” (2009).

The Georgia College Percussion Ensemble is one of many small music ensembles offered by the GC Department of Music.  Comprised of percussion majors, music majors, and non-music majors from the GC student community, the GC Percussion Ensemble's mission is to perform music composed or arranged for percussion from the beginning of the genre in 1928 to new works up to present day.  

You can view past performances on the Georgia College Percussion ensemble YouTube and Soundcoud pages. The GCPE has been under the direction of Dr. Ryan M. Smith, instructor of percussion since 2005. 

Donations are encouraged at the concert. All proceeds will benefit music scholarships and the music department through the GCSU Foundation, Inc. More information on the Department of Music can be found at gcsu.edu/music.
