UI Arts Share Program Sponsors Percussion Duo Concert Nov. 16

The University of Iowa Arts Share program will present a free concert by the Dusdieker-Pollock Percussion Duo at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16 in the Mad Hatter Room of Uptown Bills Small Mall.

The event, at the corner of Gilbert and Court streets near downtown Iowa City, is part of the UI Arts Share Chamber Music Series.

The Dusdieker-Pollock Percussion duo was formed in 2002 by UI School of Music students Michael Pollock and Nile Dusdieker. They ignore current musical trends and traditional musical arrangements, specializing in a broad range of styles and genres of music -- past, present and future.

Both students are UI seniors, studying with Daniel Moore, head of the percussion area of the UI School of Music and an internationally recognized marimba artist.

The UI Arts Share program provides artistic resources from the Iowa Center for the Arts to schools and community organizations. The 2003 Arts Share roster includes more than 75 faculty and graduate students in music, theater, dance, the visual arts and creative writing.
