Concert features “trashy” selection along with classics
October 30, 2000
Austin Peay's percussion ensemble will perform a piece for garbage cans, a la the group Stomp, at its annual Halloween concert at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 30 in the concert theatre of the music/mass communication building.
Presented by the department of music and Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, the concert is free and open to the public.
Music includes the opening of Orff's “Carmina Burana,” used in the move “Excalibur,” Lepak's Crescendo,” a rocking percussion ensemble featuring two drum sets, Bartok's “With Drums and Pipes,” which Steinquest has scored for drums, Barber's “Adagio,” used in the movie “Platoon,” Argenziano's “Fresh Trash” (a piece for garbage cans in the style of the group Stomp) and pieces by Shostakoviel, Schoenburg and Stravinksy.
The Halloween concert is the brainchild of music professor David Steinquest, who dons a new disguise each year for the performance.
