SRU FACULTY PERCUSSIONIST AND WIFE TO HEADLINE NOV. 1 BENEFIT RECITAL

          SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – To raise money for student instruments and scholarships, Slippery Rock University’s percussion department will host a benefit classical and jazz recital 8 p.m. Nov. 1 at Swope  Music Hall. Musicians will perform Latin, jazz and ragtime. The suggested donation is $10.

          SRU’s Dr. David Glover, assistant professor of percussion, and wife Kimberly Glover, will headline. Special guests include Steve Snyder on piano and Paul Thompson on bass. Synder, a professor at Moorhead State University (Ky.) formerly taught at SRU. Thompson is a Pittsburgh-based musician.

          “We are performing this recital in hopes that it will become an annual event,” Glover said.  “Proceeds  will go toward the purchase of much-needed percussion equipment.  Future recitals will help begin an SRU percussion scholarship.”

          The first half of the concert will feature the Glovers on marimbas and a Latin percussion duet, a solo marimba piece featuring Kimberly Glover and a ragtime xylophone solo with rhythm section accompaniment. 

          The second half will feature a jazz trio with David Glover on drums, Snyder and Thompson. The trio will perform standard and original jazz works.

          Donations will be accepted at the door.
