Posted by Communications on 5/3/2017

The Cesar Chavez Percussion Ensemble was invited to play at NAU’s percussion ensemble concert, April 28 in Flagstaff.   They were the only high school performing.  The piece they performed was something the ensemble played at the Arizona Percussive Arts Society Spring Festival at ASU, where they scored a “Superior,” and were selected for the showcase concert performing alongside ASU and NAU. 

“This is a big honor and we were honored to have been invited to be special guests on their concert.   I am very excited for them to see college level playing and for the students to meet the Director of Percussion Studies at NAU.  These kids work hard and represent our school passionately through music,” Alison Brightwell-Balot, Chavez’ Director of Percussion and Piano said.

The Chavez Ensemble will also be performing in front of the Herberger Friday evening for their Cinco De Mayo celebration 6-9 p.m.   It is free to the public.
