They will be performing “Time and Eternity” by BYU faculty composer Christian Asplund and “Hujan Mas” by Gede Purana.

The Percussion Ensemble performs a variety of pieces with a number of different percussion instruments. They also perform music from a wide variety of genres, including popular classics and modern avant-garde. They will be performing “Promise Music” by Clif Walker, “Big Country” by Bela Fleck and “Waldstein Piano Sonata” by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Panoramic Steel is a steel drum ensemble using standard instruments from Trinidad. It has a large repertoire that includes numbers from genres such as traditional calypso, Soca, Brazilian and popular modern music. The ensemble will be performing “Flamingo Jump” by director and BYU School of Music faculty member Ron Brough, “Dee Mwa Wee” by Andy Narell and “Rainorma” by Aldwyn Roberts.
