DULUTH, MN - "Familiar and peculiar ... featuring Jeremy Craycraft and friends" is the next scheduled concert for the College's 2012-2013 Cambiata Music Series. The performance is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, in the Mitchell Auditorium on campus. The public is invited; tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for St. Scholastica faculty/staff, free for St. Scholastica students and sisters of the monastery.
This concert is a chamber music collective with percussionist Jeremy Craycraft as the common ingredient. The instruments featured are presented in rare and usual combinations. There will be the ever-popular "Fanfare for the Common Man" by Aaron Copland and the audience will be introduced to the music of Andy Akiho, who explores the remarkable similarity between the timbres of the marimba and cello in "21," and the contrast of the steel drums and string quartet in his dynamic "I fallen two!"
