The Pacer


On March 17 UTM will be hosting the Yale Percussion Collective directed by Robert Van Sice. Sice will also be giving a free percussion concert at 7:30 p.m. in the Fulton Theatre located in the Fine Arts building as well as a masterclass at 2:30 p.m. featuring Reich Drumming and Cage Story.

The group is made up of world-renowned musicians who have studied under the direction of Robert Van Sice at Yale University over the past decade and are now preforming and teaching all around the world.

Shane Jones, Assistant Professor of Percussion/Co-Director of Percussion Studies says, “The Percussion Collective [with] Robert Van Sice brings its star lineup of percussionists into the world with an energetic program featuring two masterpieces for six players. Steve Reich’s Sextet is a cornerstone of the repertoire, comprised of five continuous movements ranging from lush, to jarring, to groovy and everything in between.”
