The world has never heard “Streaming,” a percussion piece by Michael Burritt, but the University of Tennessee at Martin percussion ensemble is about to change that.
The ensemble’s fall concert, featuring guest artist Keith Aleo, will begin at 3 p.m. Nov. 6 in Room 112 of Boling University Center on the UT Martin campus.
Aleo, a Zildjian Cymbal representative from Boston University, will be the featured soloist in the Burritt piece. Matthew Stratton, assistant professor of tuba and euphonium, will be featured in a concerto for tuba and percussion ensemble.
The ensemble will also perform a bombastic work in the style of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, which will feature Daniel Houston, senior percussion major, on the drum set. Attendees will also hear a variety of other selections.
The concert is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
