Professor Mark Goodenberger conducts the CWU Percussion Ensemble in this dynamic, thrilling, stirring, and hilarious series program that will appeal to people of all ages. The group combines cutting-edge compositions by the leading composers of the day with "world-beat" grooves, drawn from cultures around the globe. Marimbas, xylophones, vibraphones, timpani, junk-yard objects and every kind of drum imaginable find their way to the front of the stage at a Percussion Ensemble concert. For this Presidential Series concert, the centerpiece of the program will be the River of Life (Songs of Joy and Sorrow)-a song cycle by George Crumb for Percussion Quartet, Soprano and Piano.
