Farewell” by Ney Rosaura; Richie Blosch, a senior music major from Fort Worth, Texas, will perform a solo on marimba.

Mark Rogers, followed by “Impressions” by Julie Giroux. The concert will conclude with Brant Karrick’s “J.S. Jig.”

“My favorite part of the show is when we play the piece ‘Impressions’ by Julie Giroux,” said Ellie Hooten, a sophomore history and secondary education major from Bryant, Ark. “It is beautiful, and fun at the same time.

“Richie Blosch also plays the marimba for the concerto piece. ... He is very talented and quick with the mallets,” she added.
