Caribbean and Pirate Adventures 2013

Caribbean Sound steel drum ensemble energized Cedar City with three packed assemblies, an evening concert and a family matinée from Feb. 21 to 23, 2013.  As one of our five year patrons said, "Now that's good music."  As one of the adults said, "How could you not feel happy after this concert?"

Thanks to all involved, including over 30 volunteers who provided lobby displays, art and science activities, and logistical support.  See the program under concerts for more details.

New Percussion Equipmentpercuss

OSU recently purchased many new percussion instruments, including a marimba, xylophone, drum set, congas, bongos, bass drum, snare, cymbals and auxiliary percussion instruments.  These long-awaited instruments make it possible to play concert pieces with the appropriate equipment. Percussionists will no longer need to substitute instruments or leave parts of the music out of the performance, bringing the whole Orchestra to an even higher level of excellence.
