Gregory Jaeger to Present Junior Percussion Recital at FSU
Frostburg State University student Gregory Jaeger will present his junior percussion recital on Sunday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public.
Jaeger’s playlist features songs that are meant to inspire different emotions. “A Little Prayer” by Evelyn Glennie is a solemn, organ-like piece that presents a relaxed, spiritual perspective of marimba music. Scott Ward’s “Sleight of Hand” centers around a dramatic act with moving lines and expressive percussive sections. This piece depicts the different stages of a magic act and the interaction of the magician and the audience. The magician begins with his grand entrance and then dazzles the audience with flashy colors as their anticipation grows. Finally, the magician throws all his magic and splendor into his finale to conclude his act.
Jaeger will also present works by Gordon Stout, Robert S. Cohen, John H. Beck and Ben Wahlund.
As a major in FSU’s Department of Music, Jaeger was instructed by Dr. Ronald Horner. Jaeger is a member of the Collegiate Percussive Arts Society and is recognized by the Dean’s List of spring 2012. He anticipates graduating in May 2013 with his Bachelor of Arts degree in music management and a minor in business administration. After graduation, Jaeger hopes to own and perform in his own studio. Jaeger graduated from James Hubert Blake High School in 2008. He is the son of William and Penelope Jaeger from Silver Spring, Md.
