Percussion group marches to `Different Drummers'

Variety of musical styles, eclectic instruments

April 18, 2002

The Ethos Percussion Group will perform Saturday night at Jim Rouse Theatre for the Performing Arts at Wilde Lake High School as part of the Discovery Series presented by Candlelight Concerts.

Ethos has celebrated music-making for more than a decade. Hailing from the Manhattan School of Music, the Juilliard School and Yale University, the four members of the ensemble are known for performing in a wide variety of musical styles on an eclectic battery of instruments.

Adults and youngsters are invited to bring a drum or percussion instrument and join with members of Ethos for the program, called "Different Drummers."

FOR THE RECORD - An article in the Howard County edition of The Sun yesterday gave incorrect information about an event by the Ethos Percussion Ensemble tomorrow. The event for which the public is invited to bring drums and percussion instruments is at 7:30 tonight at a free Community Drum Circle at Jim Rouse Theatre at Wilde Lake High School. Members of the Ethos Percussion Group will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at Jim Rouse Theatre, and that concert is not an interactive event. The Sun regrets the error.

Selections Saturday will include "Marin ba ba' Suite" by John La Barbera; "Kong" by Wang Guowei; "Rite Rhythm" by Samir Chatterjee; "Break It Down" by Robert Levin; "Zaffe" by Simon Shaheen; and "Used Car Salesman" by Michael Daugherty.

Ethos' appearances around the country include Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the U.S. Military Academy and the American Museum of Natural History.

"Different Drummers" will be presented at 8 p.m. Saturday at Jim Rouse Theatre for the Performing Arts, 5460 Trumpeter Road, Columbia. Admission is $15 for adults; $5 for students to age 18. 410-715-0034 or 301-596-6203.
