Nova Singers, under the direction of Dr. Laura Lane, presents two performances of Drum Song, Saturday, April 14 at 7:30 pm, at Kresge Recital Hall, Knox College, Galesburg, and Sunday, April 15 at 4:00pm, at First Congregational Church, Moline.
Experience the soaring voices of the Nova Singers punctuated by the rhythms of marimba, bass drum, cymbals, bongos, steel drums, and more! This unique program features love songs by Stephen Paulus, Curse Upon Iron by Veljo Tormis, and the newest composition by Galesburg composer Daniel Godsil entitled High Flight.
“I’m thrilled to be performing with my dear friend and colleague, Nikki Malley,” says director Laura Lane. “We’ve long wanted to collaborate on a program of music for voices and percussion, and here it is! We have Nikki playing tons of instruments including: marimba, vibes, Shaman drum, bass drum, chimes, bongos and temple blocks, to mention a few. Plus, Galesburg composer Daniel Godsil has written a new piece, called High Flight, for Nova and Nikki, which will really show off Nikki’s skills on the vibraphone; we premiere it on these concerts.
