CCM’s Spring 2018 Percussion Series presents two diverse performances, featuring a musical trip to the Caribbean and a tribute concert to composer Herbert Brün in celebration of the 100th anniversary of his birth.
CCM kicks off its Spring 2018 Percussion Series at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 27, as the CCM Steel Drum Band presents its annual concert A Trip to Trinidad and Back.
The concert offers an evening of pop, folk and reggae compositions designed to warm up the coldest winter nights.
