Nebraska Day of Percussion March 10 at UNO
Omaha - Drum roll, please.
The fifth annual Nebraska Day of Percussion is set for Saturday, March 10, at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). The event, sponsored by the Nebraska Percussive Arts Society and the UNO Department of Music, will be held in the Strauss Performing Arts Center on the UNO campus.
Hundreds of percussionists throughout the region are expected to attend the day's activities, which will feature clinics and performances by top-notch drummers and percussionists. All interested members of the general public are invited to attend. The day’s events will conclude with a finale concert/clinic featuring internationally renowned drummer Steve Smith, who played in Journey and Vital Information.
"If you're into drumming, UNO is definitely the place you'll want to be March 10," said event organizer Tomm Roland, coordinator of percussion studies and multicultural music at UNO.
Areas of percussion covered this year include drum set, Brazilian percussion, electronics, concert percussion, jazz percussion and keyboard percussion. In addition, there will be activities for select Omaha area high school percussionists, a Fundamentals clinic geared for beginning drummers and an opportunity to meet Steve Smith. The finale concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the Strauss Performing Arts Center Recital Hall.
The day also will include vendor and percussion displays, along with chances to win prizes.
All-day tickets, which include the evening clinic by Steve Smith, are $15 for the general public and $10 for Percussive Arts Society members.
