Trinity Western Universityâ€™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 Rosauroâ€™s Concerto for Marimba.
TWU concert band director Allan Thorpe noted the piece has spirited rhythms.
â€œThe virtuosity that it demands of Cathrie will make it a delight for our audience to listen to,â€ he said.
Of course Gershwinâ€™s piece I Got Rhythm will be played as well as Robert Russell Bennettâ€™s Suite of Old American Dances.
Admission for both shows is a suggested donation of $10 and those interested should plan to arrive early.
