Concerts all about rhythm

Trinity Western University’s (TWU) School of Arts, Media, and Culture is going to shake things up with the energetic performances of its concert band and orchestra in I Got Rhythm.

Featuring music from Gershwin to Haydn, the program runs Nov. 21 in Langley at 7:30 p.m. at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church at 20097 72nd Ave. and on Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Peace Lutheran Church at 2029 Ware St. in Abbotsford.

The up-tempo events feature moving music with Cathrie Yuen in her last performance before graduating. Yuen is a percussionist who will take centre stage in Brazilian composer Ney Rosauro’s Concerto for Marimba.

TWU concert band director Allan Thorpe noted the piece has spirited rhythms.

“The virtuosity that it demands of Cathrie will make it a delight for our audience to listen to,” he said. 

Of course Gershwin’s piece I Got Rhythm will be played as well as Robert Russell Bennett’s Suite of Old American Dances.

Admission for both shows is a suggested donation of $10 and those interested should plan to arrive early.
