If you’ve never attended a percussion concert in the past, don’t be fooled by your preconceptions of what “percussion” is — this concert will not just be drums and triangle! Percussion instruments are some of the most dynamic and varied instruments that music has to offer, and burst with excitement and color. The Percussion Ensemble at Carthage is a dynamic group of musicians who play a large variety of percussion instruments, including the melodious marimba, glockenspiel, and xylophone. This concert will feature a selection of pieces for large and small ensembles, as well as highlight student soloists from the percussion studio.

The percussion ensemble is led by Michael Kozakis, adjunct assistant professor of music. In addition to his work at Carthage, Prof. Kozakis is an active percussionist in the Chicago area. He has performed with both the Chicago Symphony and the Lyric Opera orchestras as an extra percussionist, and played for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra from Feb. 2005 until June 2007. Past credits include performance with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Chicago Chamber Musicians, MusicNOW, and more. In his work at Carthage, Prof. Kozakis leads the percussion students through a variety of pieces and helps them compile a repertoire of enriching works that showcase their percussion mastery and musicality.

The concert is open to Carthage students, faculty, and staff only. Tickets are required and must be obtained in advance. External patrons are welcome to join us from home through our livestream.
