A “Percussion Spectacular” will close the season on Friday, April 8 at 8:00 PM. Featured as soloists in Russell Peck’s “The Glory and the Grandeur” are percussionists George Clements, David Knott, and Richard Miller – yes, the THREE Percussionists! Snare drums will also play a role in Rossini’s popular “La Gazza Ladra” Overture, Ravel’s hypnotic Bolero and, finally bringing down the house, Tschaikowsky’s 1812 Overture.
Joining the orchestra will be additional musicians from area schools in what promises to be a blockbuster of an evening!
