Percussion Duo Will Perform At Museum Of Art Nov. 6

Percussionists Nile Dusdieker and Michael Pollock will present a program of percussion duos at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, at the University of Iowa Museum of Art (UIMA). The performance will be free and open to the public.

Dusdieker and Pollock will perform music from jazz to pop and from Mozart to Scott Joplin.

Pollock said the two formed the duo one year ago, "just for the fun of it." They specialize in playing a range of styles from music of "the past, present and future."

Dusdieker is originally from Iowa City and Pollock is from Waterloo. Both are seniors at the UI School of Music with the hopes of becoming high school band directors. They study with Daniel Moore, head of percussion at the School of Music.

The UIMA, located on North Riverside Drive in Iowa City, is open noon to 10 p.m. Thursdays. Admission is free. Public metered parking is available in UI parking lots west and north of the museum.
