Guest percussionist, symphony to perform Strauss on Jan. 26

Percussionist Lisa Pegher will join the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra as a guest artist for the concert titled “Strauss: Till Eulenspiegel” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26, in the Grand Junction High School auditorium, 1400 N. Fifth St.

Pegher has performed as a soloist in numerous venues in cities such as Chicago, Tokyo, Eindhoven, Houston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and New York.

She has been called “The Future of Percussion” and Symphony Magazine wrote that Pegher is “blazing a particularly rough, un-trodden trail” in the world of percussion, according to the symphony.

Pegher will spend a week prior to the concert as an artist-in-residence in School District 51 schools and will conduct master classes.

Tuesday’s concert will feature music from American composer Charles Ives and German masters Richard Strauss and Richard Wagner.

Ticket prices start at $15 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the symphony office, 225 N. Fifth St., Suite 120, online at http://www.gjsymphony.org or by phone.

Call 243-6787 or go to the symphony’s Web site for information.
