The Buffalo State Percussion Ensemble and West African Drumming Ensemble will present a free concert at 7:30 p.m. November 7 in the Performing Arts Center at Rockwell Hall. The Percussion Ensemble, directed by Music Department Chair Bradley Fuster, uses standard percussion instruments such as timpani, mallet keyboard instruments, tom toms, cymbals and gongs, but also employs sounds generated by found or constructed instruments such as car parts, architectural elements, and household furnishings. The West African Drumming Ensemble, directed by Music Department Instructor Tiffany Nicely, uses djembes, dundun drums, and iron bells to perform traditional music of the Mande ethnic groups living in Guinea, Mali, Senegal, and the Ivory Coast. Tickets are $10.
