This concert will include Levitan's Concerto for Marimba and Percussion Ensemble, movement 1.  Giff Howarth will join us for a reprieve of this great work (it was last performed in the mid 1980's at IC, with Ted rounds as soloist).

It will also include the premiere of a work by Josh Oxford, whose compositions have long been a staple for Ithaca College percussion.  I am also hopeful that the concert will also include the premiere of a new composition by James Ieraci, long time friend of Gordon's and student of Dean Witten).
