Lawton_Press Release_The Cameron University Percussion Ensemble will present a Spring Concert on Friday, March 27, 2009, at 7 p.m. in the Simmons Center Theatre in Duncan, as an opening celebration of the 2009 Student Art Exhibition. Both events are part of the 2008-2009 Cameron University at the Simmons Center (or CU@SC) Series of concerts and exhibitions. The concert will feature an invigorating, exciting program of contemporary percussion ensemble literature performed by outstanding Cameron University music students. Admission to the concert is $6.00 for adults; $4.00 for K-12 students, military, and senior citizens; and free for Cameron University students with a current CU ID.  For concert tickets, contact the Simmons Center at 580.252.2900.

The Cameron University Percussion Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Jim Lambert, Professor of Music, includes both percussion and non-percussion majors. Selections will include original and arranged compositions for percussion ensemble, including "Feast" by Bill Douglas; "No Exit" by Lynn Glassock; "Pavane"  by Gabriel Faure, arranged by Jim Lambert; "Aria" by Emma Lou Diemer; "Irish Washerwoman," arranged by Nathan Daughtrey and featuring xylophone soloist Grant Johnson; "Head Talk" by Mark Ford; "Big Country" by Bela Fleck; "Hello, Young Lovers," arranged by Rolando Morales-Matos; "Carnival" by Rick Cline; "Ja-Mu by Rick Cline"; and "Morning Dance" by Beckenstein, arranged by LedBetter.

The Student Art Exhibition, directed by Edna McMillan, Associate Professor of Art, will include conceptual artworks from a variety of media ranging from graphite, charcoal, oil paintings, lithograph, monoprint, pastel, mixed media, and sculpture from 35 to 40 of Cameron's fine art students, who range from freshmen to seniors. The technical skill and conceptual development exhibited in the works are a reflection of the fine instruction and direction the students receive from Department of Art faculty.

A preview of the exhibit will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Simmons Center Lobby before the percussion concert. The official opening of the exhibit will include a reception for all artists immediately following the concert. The art exhibit will continue at the Simmons Center through Friday, April 10, 2009.
