ADA, Okla. – The Quey Percussion Duo will be performing at East Central University on Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Ataloa Theatre, located in the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Center (HBFFAC).
The concert is free and open to the public.
For nearly 20 years, Quey [“Kway”] Percussion Duo has dazzled audiences worldwide with their unmistakable style that blends traditions of contemporary, cross-cultural, classical, and popular music to create colorful sound worlds that often place focus on interlocking counterpoint and musical multi-tasking. Their presentations have a reputation for elevating the basic acts of striking, shaking, and scraping into a blast of energy, a splash of curiosity, with a pinch of whimsy.
“The Quey Percussion Duo is considered to be one of the finest percussion duos in the world.” Stated Dr. Nick Meyers, director of bands and percussion at ECU. “I have known the members of this group for years and have seen them perform countless times. Their performances are always wonderful and leave the audience wanting more. We are very fortunate to host this group on the campus of ECU.”
Comprised of members Gene Koshinski and Tim Broscious, QPD has performed in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, the Czech Republic, China, France, Jordan, the UK, and extensively throughout the US. They have worked with music festivals, art galleries, chamber music series’, conferences (including 5 PASIC appearances), professional orchestras, and have engaged in more than 100 university residencies worldwide. They also can be heard in the score of the award-winning short film The Passage, which was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2018.
An open masterclass will also take place from 12:30 p.m. to 1:50 p.m. in room 164 of the HBFFAC.
