Today is the second day of an event to celebrate the collaboration of percussion and music composition. Intended for composers and percussionists alike, the festival includes three concerts featuring the Furman University Percussion Ensemble, high school percussion groups from around Central Florida, the Central Florida Composers Forum, and the UCF Percussion Ensemble.
On tonight’s final concert I will be premiering a duo with fellow percussionist here at UCF, Matt Roberts. The duo Providence for marimba and vibraphone was written by student composer, Brandon Miller. This is shaping up to be an exciting weekend. Many thanks go out to all those who have helped to make it such a success.
