Ending the program is the ONU Percussion Ensemble performing a new transcription by Gabriel Cabanillas, a 2011 ONU graduate, called “Nombango,” a traditional South African melody on marimbas, and Mark Ford’s “Head’s Up,” written for five performers playing on a variety of drumheads. Georgia Snelling, a freshman engineering major from Findlay, Ohio, and Elizabeth Druesedow, a senior music performance major from Sharon Center, Ohio, will be featured in Tom Miller’s Brazilian-influenced piece for steel band trio and clarinet called “Chorinho pra Hop.”
