The Meadows Percussion Ensemble (MPE), under the direction of Jon D. Lee, presents a spring concert mixing old and new, with an emphasis on masterworks by several famed composers. The ensemble is pleased to feature two students on virtuosic xylophone rags: Meadows graduate student Kirstyn Norris Alarcon will premiere her own arrangement of tunes from the 1920s called Boyfriends Medley, and Meadows senior Kendall Barnes will present the George Hamilton Green classic Dottie Dimples. To end the show, the ensemble is honored to welcome international concert artist and Meadows cello professor Andres Diaz for a performance of Tan Dun’s Elegy: Snow in June. This showstopper is a tour-de-force for both cello and the four percussionists who accompany.

Access to this virtual performance is complimentary, but advance online registration is required.

YouTube Livestreaming details will be emailed to registrants prior to the event.
