Posted on April 1, 2011.

HIGH POINT, N.C., April 1, 2011 ? High Point University will showcase its talented instrumentalists with an evening of music at its first Spring Instrumental Concert, to be held at 7:30 p.m. on April 12 in the Pauline Theatre of the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public.

The concert will feature several university student ensembles including the HPU Percussion Ensemble, Chamber Ensemble, Jazz Combo and Symphonic Band.

Dr. Danny Frye, director of instrumental studies at HPU, says that the groups will perform a variety of works including ?Shock Factor,? which was written by HPU instructor of composition, Nathan Daughtrey, ?American Elegy,? several familiar jazz pieces and others.

?Our Spring Instrumental Concert promises to have something for everyone,? says Frye. ?From classical chamber ensemble music and demanding symphonic band literature to toe-tapping percussion selections and laid back jazz standards, this concert has it all. We?re excited to share the diverse student talent found at HPU.?

No tickets are required. The doors will open at 7 p.m., and the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.
