Van Hassel to present percussion performance


Joseph Van Hassel, solo percussionist, will be performing pieces written specifically for him on vibraphone, snare drum with electronic accompaniment, orchestra bells with spoken text, and bass drum at a free concert at Ohio University Zanesville.


The music features a mix of more "modern" sounding pieces and music that is more immediately accessible. In addition to performing the artist will discuss the works. The artist will provide an introduction and explanation for concepts used during the performance.


Van Hassel holds the positions of Visiting Professor of Percussion (sabbatical replacement) at Ohio University and percussion instructor at the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan. He has taught numerous master classes on different areas of percussion, including classes at the Hartt School, the Interlochen Summer Arts Camp, and numerous high schools. He earned degrees from Ohio University and the Cincinnati College–Conservatory of Music, and is currently a doctoral candidate at the Hartt School.


Ohio University Zanesville invites the community to attend this free concert on Thursday, March 21, at 7 p.m. in the Elson Hall Auditorium. The concert is part of Ohio University Zanesville’s Third Thursday Events Series.
