Cal Poly’s Polyrhythmics to Perform on Campus May 16

SAN LUIS OBISPO — Polyrhythmics, Cal Poly’s percussion ensemble, will give its annual concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 16, in the Performing Arts Center Pavilion.

This year’s concert will carry the listener around the world as percussion music is performed that evokes the power of Native American drumming, the island beauty of Hawaiian marimbas, and the mystery of Aztec ritual ceremony. The program will even feature a selection performed entirely on pieces of wood. Composers John Luther Adams, Lou Harrison and Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys will be featured.

The free recital is sponsored by Cal Poly’s College of Liberal Arts and Music Department. For more information, call the Music Department at 805-756-2406.
