The Lee University Percussion Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Andy Harnsberger, will host its spring concert on Sunday, April 21, at 3 p.m. in Pangle Hall. 

The program will include “Rock, Paper, Scissors” by Russell Wharton, “Cruisin’ Through Fire” by Jackson Rifle, “Patrials” by Alan Keown, and “Din” by David Harnsberger. It will also feature “Oi Erinyes,” a three-movement composition by Lee student Madeline Fowler that involves various percussion instruments.

Selections range from chamber works for three to four performers to works utilizing many instruments.

Along with conducting percussion ensemble, Dr. Harnsberger is in demand as a recitalist and clinician across the country and internationally, presenting clinics and masterclasses at as many as 40 universities per year.
