Some very proud moments for Rowan percussion. On Monday, I attended the MM recital of John Vines who is now studying with Alan Abel, Chris Deviney and Phil O’Banion at Temple University. John played great! And last night, senior Stephen Fleming, performed the 3rd movement of the Kurka Marimba Concerto with the Rowan University Orchestra as a winner of this year’s concerto soloist competition. Stephen also played great. On that same concert, Dylan Cahill played timpani on Tchaikovsky Symphony #5 and played it like an old pro. I am very proud of all of them. ROWAN PERCUSSIONISTS ROCK ONI!!!!
I am very proud to announce that one of my seniors, Ryan Cullen, has been selected as a member of the World Percussion Group directed by Maraca2. It is an ensemble comprised of individuals from the USA, Canada, China, Denmark, Taiwan, Estonia, Italy, France, Luxembourg, Spain, Ukraine, Portugal, and Tenerife. This group is comprised of 19 individuals selected by blind audition. Only 5 players were selected from the United States. Stiff worldwide competition indeed!!!!!!
