Tough to beat the joy of 'Holiday Percussion Pops'
Main Page Content
Iowa Percussion and the PanAmerican Steel Band welcome winter to Iowa City with "Holiday Percussion Pops," which will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9, in the Englert Theatre in downtown Iowa City.
The concert, under the direction of Dan Moore, professor of percussion in the University of Iowa School of Music, is free and open to the public.
Even the biggest Grinch will smile at seasonal favorites old and new, such as the group's Caribbean tinged Snowlypso Medley, The Things We Want for Christmas Medley, and Soca Santa, some fun holiday music from Trinidad and Tobago.
Iowa Percussion and School of Music staff will team up again this year to support the Johnson County Crisis Center Food Bank. Audience members are asked to bring an item from the Crisis Center’s wish list (such as canned fruit, 100 percent fruit juice, soup, canned meat, pasta and rice, baby diapers, baby formula and food, toilet paper, or laundry detergent).
The School of Music is part of the Division of Performing Arts in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. For accommodations at the concert contact the School of Music at 319-335-1603. For a UI arts calendar and details about upcoming events visit the new Arts Iowa website.
