Student Composers and the KSC Percussion Ensemble

Thursday -

In this concert, the Percussion Ensemble pairs with KSC’s student composers for an innovative evening of contemporary music.

Music Department composition faculty train students in compositional techniques within a variety of styles and forms. Student composers also learn about orchestration, notation, rehearsal skills, and applicable technologies.

Students enrolled in composition classes or lessons must develop a piece from concept to performance by the end of each semester. Percussion, often regarded as the “heartbeat” of nearly every musical style, consists of traditional instruments such as timpani, snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, triangle and tambourine. Under the innovative direction of Christopher Swist and Amy Garapic, new music technologies are combined with classical, time-honored instruments.

Tickets are $5 for students and seniors, $10 for adults. Please contact the Box Office at (603) 358-2168 for more information.
