The Millikin University Percussion Ensemble will present their annual "Synergy" concert on Sunday, Feb. 23 at 4 p.m. in Kirkland Fine Arts Center.
"Synergy" showcases the distinctiveness of Millikin's ubiquitous interdisciplinary alliances through a collaborative concert featuring performances with students across the College of Fine Arts.
This year's program will explore the many parallels between music and visual arts, and will feature art students enrolled in Annette Russo's, Millikin assistant professor of art, design course. This performative setting will place the artists on stage alongside the award-winning percussion ensemble in a unique blending of expressive form that is sure to intrigue the audience.
Quinn Wise, a senior theatre major from Madison, Ind., and Anna Marie Abbate, a junior theatre major from Niles, Ill., two student choreographers studying with Angela Fleddermann Miller, Millikin instructor of dance, will create a culminating synergistic performance encompassing music, sculpture and modern dance.
