Concert to showcase drumming ensembles
St. Scholastica will host a concert later this month featuring the St. Scholastica Steel Band and World Drumming Ensemble with special guest musicians.
The Building Beyond Bridges concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29 in the Mitchell Auditorium on campus.
The Saints Percussion Ensembles will present an uplifting and energetic program showcasing a variety of global musical styles. They’ll be joined by musicians from Rice Lake, WI, High School, whose new steel band is the first of its kind in the region. The University of Wisconsin-Superior, the only other collegiate steel band in the area, will be a part of the show as well.
The percussion ensembles will present a program based on building bridges beyond music. They’ll perform four mass-band tunes: a soca (an offshoot of calypso), a Latin dance number, and two contemporary funk tunes.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door or by contacting the Spotlight Box Office at 218-723-7000 or email@example.com.
