BYU Percussion Ensemble, Panoramic Steel in concert April 11

Hands move with captivating skill, toes tap in intense rhythm—“Percussion from Around the World” with BYU’s Percussion Ensemble and Panoramic Steel promises an exhilarating evening Saturday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $11, or $8 with BYU or student ID, and can be purchased online at www.byuarts.com, by phone at (801) 422-4322 or in person at the Harris Fine Arts Center Ticket Office.

The Percussion Ensemble performs an array of music, from avant-garde to popular classics to ethnic and world music on instruments like the marimba, vibraphone, xylophone, glockenspiel and others.

Panoramic Steel, BYU’s own steel drum ensemble, uses all standard Trinidadian instruments crafted from 55 gallon barrels. Traditional Calypso and Soca music is performed along with a unique blend of Brazilian and other popular musical styles.

For more information, contact Ron Brough, director of both ensembles, at (801) 422-3320 or ronald_brough@byu.edu.
