Austin Peay State University Percussion Ensemble Holiday concert on December 2nd

 

The APSU Music DepartmentClarksville, TN – The image that comes to mind when listening to James Taylor’s version of the Christmas classic “Jingle Bells” isn’t that of a winter wonderland. Rather, you might picture yourself in a smoky bar in Memphis or New Orleans, sweating from the room’s thick, humid air.
