UNO to Host 'Day of Rhythm' April 7
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Music and The Nebraska Percussive Arts Society will present "Day of Rhythm" - a day of clinics for percussion and rhythm section players - on Wednesday, April 7, in the Strauss Performing Arts Center at UNO. A concert featuring selected clinicians is planned for 7:30 p.m. that evening.
The clinics are free, but the evening concert costs $15 for general admission and $10 for students and Percussive Arts Society members.
Morning sessions are primarily for percussionists, with sessions on hand drumming, All-State preparation and orchestral percussion. The clinics will feature faculty and students from the UNO Department of Percussion, including Tomm Roland, department chair; Ken Yoshida, principal percussion with the Omaha Symphony; and Jason Domonkos, UNO artist faculty in percussion.
Afternoon clinics will focus on playing as a rhythm section and will include individual sessions for bass, piano and drums, followed by a group clinic for all rhythm section players. Featured artists include Dana Murray, UNO percussionist, and New York jazz musicians Orrin Evans and Grammy Award-winning bassist Eric Revis. The trio will also perform during the evening concert.
