Percussion Festival 2012
Saturday, April 14, 2012
As the Percussion Director at Southern Utah University, Dr. Lynn Vartan hosts an annual Percussion Festival each Spring. The festival features two guest artists who arrive in Cedar City on Thursday and stay in residence until Sunday. On Thursday and Friday there are opportunities for lessons with the guest artists. On Friday night, Dr. Vartan hosts a social event for the artists, the music department faculty and the percussion students from SUU. This is a great time to get closer to the artists and for the students to ask any questions to the artists about the career and musical life. Perspective percussion students are invited to participate.

Miguel’s workshop was about marimba performance, with new insights to playing and performing your best.
