TOM BURRITT PERFORMS WITH OBU PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE
Dr. Tom Burritt (University of Texas-Austin) was on campus in November and performed with the OBU Percussion Ensemble. Dr. Burritt performed solo marimba on The Alabados Song by Paul Bissell and solo xylophone on Valse Brillante by George Hamilton Green. Dr. Burritt received degrees from Ithaca College, Kent State University, and Northwestern University and has a terrific reputation for performing chamber music and solo percussion music.
Dr. Burritt has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Stevens Marimba Seminar, and the Zeltsman Marimba Festival. Dr. Burritt's clinic is made possible by support from the OBU School of Fine Arts, Majestic Percussion, Sabian Cymbals, Innovative Percussion, Remo, Beetle Percussion, and Grover Pro Percussion.
