SUU’s upcoming percussion ensemble on Nov. 20 is aiming to capture the emotions of everyday experience and deeper thought for everyone to enjoy.

The performance combines dynamic and contemporary sounds and features some very memorable pieces such as the alluring vibe piece “Tesseract” by Francisco Perez, and the chaotic tempo of “Mayhem” by Daniel Montoya.

“Many people do not know what percussion music is really like,” Jordan Nielson, a music performance major, said in a press release. “Percussion ensemble is as diverse as your imagination allows. This concert has something in it for anyone to love.”

Melanie Hunt, a sophomore music major from Cedar City, said the group has come together on this performance.

“The most rewarding moments have happened when we all groove together, when a certain phrase or entire piece just works because we are a good team and really know what the piece means to us,” Hunt said in a press release. “The variety of repertoire, instrumentation and even students who perform truly make each concert special.”

The performance is set in Thorley Recital Hall of the Music Building at 7:30 p.m. on Monday.Everyone in the community is welcome to attend this free event.
