New Glenn Korff School of Music faculty Dave Hall will present a percussion recital at 7:30 p.m. on October 1st in Kimball Recital Hall.
“The unique thing about percussion recitals is the instrumentation is always different, and the wide array of sounds and possibilities present in percussion music is always exciting to me,” Hall said. “This recital will feature a mix of solo and chamber works and will traverse a wide expressive range from aggressive to cerebral to joyful.”
Audiences will hear a collection of contemporary percussion music including solo marimba works by Joseph Schwanter and Steven Mackey. Hall will perform Scott Lindroth's exciting piece "Bell Plates" for found percussion sounds and digital audio and also collaborate with fellow UNL percussion faculty Tony Falcone and Ben Coleman on Paul Rennick's "Slopes." Guest artist Jake Remington will join Dave for a performance of Hall's original composition "Skylight."
