CCM is proud to present a pair of diverse percussion concerts this semester featuring a musical trip to the Caribbean, original compositions by CCM students and much more.

A perennial fan favorite, CCM’s Spring Percussion Series kicks off at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 30, with some Caribbean sunshine as the CCM Steel Drum Band presents its annual concert. A Trip to Trinidad and Back is an evening of traditional music from Trinidad, along with pop, folk and reggae compositions designed to warm up even the coldest of Cincinnati nights.

The series concludes with a FREE concert featuring the original works of CCM’s own students and alumni. On April 15, the entire CCM Percussion Ensemble will perform a wide-ranging concert of established composers such as Frederick Rzewski and Stuart Saunders Smith, as well as CCM student composers Hangui Zhang, Nate May and Evan Williams.
