Faculty Select Series
Tuesday, November 7, 2017 • 7:30 p.m.
Green Center, 605 S. College Ave.
Marimba meets the classics! Naoko Takada will perform her arrangements of works by Henry Purcell, Franz Haydn and Niccolo Paganini as well as contemporary compositions by French, American and Taiwanese composers. As the Time Picayune noted, “No one needs a critic when an audience leaps to its feet, calling a star soloist back for three encores.”
