Join the percussion ensembles and alumni for a concert in celebration of J. B. Smith's retirement featuring alumni composer Stephen Ridley's Symphony for Percussion!
Professor of Music J. B. Smith is retiring from Arizona State University after thirty-three years of service to the School of Music. As head of the percussion program, he helped build and maintain a program that has produced innumerable professional performers and educators. Many of these alumni return to campus to perform with Dr. Smith one more time as part of this Rhythmic Variations concert.
The Arizona State University percussion ensembles include the Contemporary Percussion Ensemble, the World Percussion Ensemble, the Percussion Jazz Ensemble and the Pan Devils Steel Band.
