The Baylor Percussion Group will present its second concert of the 2021-2022 season on Thursday, March 17, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Jones Concert Hall, which is located within the Glennis McCrary Music Building. The BPG is a ten-member ensemble of student performers, directed by Todd Meehan, Professor of Percussion and Director of the Instrumental Studies Division, and Arlo Shultis, Part-Time Lecturer in Percussion.
Appearing as special guest on the program is composer Iván Treviño, who serves as Lecturer in Percussion at The University of Texas at Austin and co-director of the Eastman Percussion Festival, a biennial summer festival hosted by Eastman School of Music.
