Cedarville, Ohio-Were tubas meant to play rock ‘n roll? Mike DiCuirci Jr. will let the audience decide when he gives a lively and humorous tuba concert Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m. in the Recital Hall of Cedarville’s Dixon Ministry Center.
The recital could be described as a “rock ‘n roll tuba experience” featuring contemporary pieces written by composer Seth Colaner, a Wittenberg graduate, as well as Matthew C. Saunders, an Ohio native. In the words of Colaner, “I wanted to write something fun and humorous, and what is more humorous than a loose musical narrative with a tuba as the rock star protagonist?” Along with these contemporary pieces, DiCuirci will be performing the works of Perschetti, Arnold, and Corwell.
DiCuirci, a Columbus resident, is an adjunct professor of music at Cedarville University.
The performance is free and open to the public. For more information, call 937-766-7728.
