N. Greenville University percussionists to perform with chorus

Published 3:45 pm Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Dr. Christopher Davis will return to perform with the Community Chorus this spring, and this time he provides an ensemble of five musicians and 15 percussion instruments, including four tympani, bass drum, tam tam, crash cymbals, two glockenspiels, chimes, xylophone, two snare drums, triangle, tambourine and, of all things, a suspended gong. Add this menagerie to a vocal chorus of almost 100, two professional soloists and two grand pianos and you have a performance of the world-famous “Carmina Burana,” by Carl Orff. Dr. Mark Schweizer will direct the chorus on Sunday, May 6 at 3 p.m. at the Polk County High School auditorium. Tickets will be available at the door. All proceeds will go to the Rotary Club of Tryon Scholarship Fund. (photo submitted by Art Brown)
