Senior Recital with Discussion, April 6

On Wednesday, April 6, at 8 p.m., Joe Brooks will be performing a recital covering two different areas of percussion performance. Joe will be performing a piece that is written for two tom-toms and snare drum, as well as two marimba solos, each demonstrating different techniques. He will also be giving a brief history of the instruments that he is performing on, as well as talk about two mallet and four mallet marimba techniques.

In the first week of March 2015, he went on a week-long tour of Ireland with the UMW Philharmonic. When he is not performing, he is doing volunteer work around the UMW Department of Music, including ushering and stage handing for other performances.
