Join us Tues., Oct. 27 at 6 p.m., for the first ever outdoor concert of the Bethel University Percussion Ensemble.
The program is under the direction of Reginald Klopfenstein, D.M., Professor of Music. The 12 members of the BU Percussion Ensemble will perform an engaging and eclectic variety of works for percussion. Mallet works include Dave Grusin’s “Memphis Stomp” and Granados’s “Villanesca.” Large percussion compositions include “The River,” by Seth Adams and “Clapping Music,” by Steve Reich.
Due to COVID concerns, we will have several additional arrangements for the performance:
• Physical distancing, means keeping a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household. To practice physical distancing, stay at least 6 feet (about two arms’ lengths) from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
