Percussion Ensemble, Choir Perform at Homecoming
The Alma College Percussion Ensemble presents its annual homecoming concert at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 8 in the Remick Heritage Center.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors 62 and up, and free for Alma College staff, students and youth 18 and under. Seating is reserved. Call (989) 463-7304 for ticket information.
The 30-student Percussion Ensemble will perform a variety of jazz pieces, says Dave Zerbe, director and founder of the group.
“This is going to be a high-energy show,” he says. “We’re featuring primarily the jazz percussion and steel drum ensemble. Expect some Caribbean soca, too. It’s going to be a lot of fun, and it’s a great way to start the homecoming weekend.”
Songs include “Love for Sale” by Cole Porter, “Kiss My Axe” by Al Di Meola, “In a Hurry” by Christian McBride and “Ode to Bille Joe” by Bobbie Gentry.
“We hope to see a lot of students and alumni,” says Zerbe. “Reserve your tickets in advance, because seats fill up fast, and be sure to bring a friend. There will be a little something for everybody.”

At 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, the Alma College Choirs join with former choir members for the annual homecoming concert and alumni awards ceremony in the Remick Heritage Center. Admission is free and open to the public.
