On Fri., Apr. 25, at 8 p.m., the renowned Percussion Group Cincinnati will perform a special concert at the VisTaTech Center on the college's main campus in Livonia, on Haggerty Road between Six and Seven Mile Roads.
Percussion Group Cincinnati was founded in 1979 and includes artists Allen Otte, James Culley, and Russell Burge, all of whom are faculty members and ensemble-in-residence at the College Conservatory of Music of the University of Cincinnati. Appearances in their national and international touring schedule have included the major cities, festivals, concert halls and schools of America, Europe and Asia. In addition to community concerts, workshops, and master classes, the Group regularly appears as concerto soloists with symphony orchestras, and has presented their program "Music From Scratch" to hundreds of thousands of children across North America.
Percussion Group Cincinnati is particularly respected for its knowledge of and experience with the entire range of the music of John Cage, having made tours and festival appearances with him on a number of occasions in Europe and in America, and having had pieces created by Cage especially for the Group.
