26th Annual APSU Percussion Ensemble Halloween Concert set for October 28th

 

The APSU Music DepartmentClarksville, TN – “If I have to describe in one word what’s going to be going on with this concert,” Dr. David Steinquest said, leaning forward and rubbing his hands, “it would be ‘magic.’”

He lifted his eyebrows as he spoke, as if the word itself contained supernatural properties. It’s the type of showmanship one comes to expect from the Austin Peay State University professor of music, especially at this time of year.

Every October for the last 26 years, Steinquest has hosted the APSU Percussion Ensemble’s Halloween Concert – an enormously popular performance that blends music with the mayhem of the season. This year’s concert will consist of two performances at 6:00pm and 8:00pm on October 28th in the APSU Music/Mass Communication Concert Hall.

Gateway Chamber Orchestra Opens Season with September 26th “Contrasting Lines” Concert

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – In the mid-18th century, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, like all good rebellious children, decided to break away from the style and tradition of his father – composer Johann Sebastian Bach. Some might argue that it was a foolish move, considering that C.P.E. Bach has always lingered under the long shadow cast by his legendary father.

But others, including the likes of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Joseph Haydn, saw the son as the true innovator who brought something new to the musical world. Mozart even famously said that the younger Bach “is the father, we are the children.”
