Robin Engelman, your tour guide . . . in Texas no doubt!
It is certainly a display of favoritism to pick one or two performances among all we heard as being special, but for this reviewer, two students must be mentioned.
Stephen F. Austin freshman Kevin Rice’s performance of Etude #35 from Portraits in Rhythm by Anthony Cirone would be a worthy clinic in technique and musicality for any snare drummer and University of Wisconsin, Madison, Sarah Devore’s stunning display of musicality in PRELUDE No. 1 by Ney Rosauro will not be forgotten.
Well, O.K., the three Northwestern University students who played RAIN TREE on a week of rehearsals! Â Actually, there were simply too many fine examples of the percussive arts to mention. Â One never tires of hearing the music of young people.
On Sunday the 10th, Nexus performed its solo concert in Madison at the Mills Hall and the next morning returned home.
