BYU's popular Panoramic Steel, Percussion Ensemble in concert

Directed by Ron Brough, the Brigham Young University Panoramic Steel and Percussion Ensemble will perform an evening of percussion music with special guest Gary Gibson Friday (Nov. 22) at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Tickets at $9 for the general public with $3 off with BYU or student ID are available in the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322 or at www.byu.edu/hfac.

The Percussion Ensemble will perform "Calabash" by Narell and the "Russian Easter Overture." Panoramic Steel will perform various pieces by special guest Gary Gibson including "September Sun," "ChaCha Mi Mama," "Mom and Pop" and "My Two Cents."

Although his early musical training and education through graduate school were in the classical realm, Gibson shifted his attention as a teen-age percussionist to jazz and Caribbean music styles.

While still keeping a foot firmly planted in his classical roots as a composer, he has embraced the steel pan as his primary vehicle for jazz improvisation.
