Ouachita Baptist University’s Division of Music presents the Percussion Ensemble in concert Monday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m. in McBeth Recital Hall. The Percussion Ensemble will be joined by a variety of musicians featuring Ouachita students, faculty and alumni during the concert, which is free and open to the public.

“Each piece on the program is so unique,” said conductor Dr. Ryan Lewis, associate professor of music at Ouachita. “I am thrilled that the students are having the opportunity to collaborate with musicians in so many areas.”

The concert will feature the world premiere of “Whereon They Stand,” a piece written by educator, composer and percussionist Andrew Cote. “Whereon They Stand” was commissioned in 2020 by a consortium of musicians led by Ouachita alum Sierra Westberg Breeding; it will be performed by Breeding and Dr. Caroline Taylor, professor of music at Ouachita, on saxophone, with Lewis and Ouachita alum Aaron Breeding on percussion.
