Triptych, a woodwind and percussion trio composed of music faculty members Dr. Ann Marie Bingham, Dr. Ed Bingham and Steve Hall, will perform at 8 p.m. tonight, Oct. 26, in Smith Music Hall. The concert is free and open to the public.
They will be joined by faculty colleagues Dr. Wendell Dobbs, Kay Lawson, Dr. Martin Saunders, Dr. Steve Lawson, Dr. Michael Stroeher and Dr. Ben Miller for a performance of Jan Bach's Helix. The work features the saxophone and explores its dual personality as both a classical and jazz instrument.
The Binghams and
Hall formed Triptych
in the mid-1980s, when they taught together at
Cumberland College in Williamsburg, Ky. They performed extensively and
commissioned several works specifically for the trio. Most of their repertoire
requires an enormous array of pitched and unpitched percussion instruments.
