The concert will take place in the Richard E. Peeler Art Center gallery and is free and open to the public. Visitors are free to view the art exhibition as the percussionists perform throughout the gallery space, using the art works as a backdrop to the music.

Students from the DePauw percussion studio will perform works in a variety of styles by such composers as John Cage, Steve Reich, and Alan Hovhaness to complement paintings, sculpture, and video installations by contemporary artists from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. Peeler Art Center 2006.jpg
