03.8.2013

HPU High Point University Percussion Jazz EnsembleHIGH POINT, N.C., March 8, 2013 – High Point University will celebrate its talented students and faculty by hosting an evening of music at the Percussion Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble Concert, to be held at 7:30 p.m. on March 22 in the Pauline Theatre of the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. The event is open to the public; no tickets are required.

The HPU Percussion Ensemble, directed by world-renowned marimbist and composer Dr. Nathan Daughtrey, adjunct professor of percussion and music composition, will perform a wide variety of works, from the heart-stopping sounds of a Japanese Taiko drum ensemble to a soothing and melancholy setting of “America the Beautiful,” to be performed with the HPU Women’s Choir. The percussion performance will also feature two pieces composed by Daughtrey.

The Jazz Ensemble, directed by Robert Faub, instructor of saxophone, will end the evening’s performance with American jazz classics, featuring legendary Greensboro jazz trumpeter Alan Neese. Neese lived in New York City during the height of the modern jazz eras in the 1950s through the early 1970s. He will be featured in Wayne Shorter’s “Footprints” and Eddie Harris’ “Freedom Jazz Dance.” The band will also perform classic and modern standards, such as Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein’s “All the Things You Are” and Gene DePaul’s “Star Eyes,” featuring vocalist Eugenia Copeland.
