  Looking for an inspiring musical event to perk up your stick season? Join us Friday, October 27, at 7 pm at the Center of the Arts for a concert featuring conjugal percussionists Justin and Cassie Bunting, who will perform pieces for marimba, clapping hands and other instruments by Steve Reich, Wayne Siegel, Christopher Norton and Ivan Trevino, along with original compositions. The concert will also include a selection of tasty jazz piano standards and odd improvisations by David J. Rothman.

This concert is the third in the New Western Slope Chamber Music Series, whose mission is to connect accomplished regional classical and jazz musicians with audiences in the Gunnison Valley, both through concerts and educational programs, in order to create a year-round, vibrant musical culture for all.

Dr. Justin Bunting currently serves as Lecturer in Music, Theory & Percussion at Western State Colorado University. His appearances include the Percussive Arts Society International Convention, the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic, Great American Brass Band Festival, Greensboro Fringe Festival, Music for a Great Space, and the ARTCORE Concert Series. Justin earned the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Performance and a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Music Theory from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, as well as a Master of Music in Percussion Performance from Belmont University and a Bachelor of Music in Percussion Performance from The Ohio State University. He is an endorser for Zildjian Cymbals, Grover Pro Percussion, and a member of the D’Addario/Evans Education Collective.

Cassie Bunting has a diverse career as a performer, educator, and chamber musician. She previously served as Assistant Director of Bands and Director of Percussion Studies at Charlotte Catholic High School and Holy Trinity Catholic Middle School in Charlotte, North Carolina. She has performed with orchestras in Greensboro (NC) and Winston-Salem (NC), the North Carolina Brass Band, Gate City Percussion, and was invited as part of the first Mars Hills University Percussion Guest Artist Residency. Cassie holds a Master of Music degree in Percussion Performance and Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Musicology from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Belmont University. She has studied with acclaimed percussionists Eric Willie, Neeraj Mehta, Christopher Norton, and Todd Kemp.

David J. Rothman has moved to Crested Butte full-time three times since 1993, and thinks he may have gotten it right this time. He serves as Director of the Graduate Program in Creative Writing at Western State Colorado University, along with also directing the Poetry Concentration in that program, editing its literary journal THINK, and directing the international conference Writing the Rockies and the regional Headwaters Poetry Festival and Reading Series. He serves as the current Poet Laureate of Colorado’s Western Slope, the Resident Poet for Colorado Public Radio, and also teaches at Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver. He was the co-founder of the Crested Butte Music Festival, the founder of Conundrum Press (now an imprint of Bower House Books in Denver), and the headmaster of Crested Butte Academy from 1998-2004. He lives, scribbles and practices the piano on Maroon Avenue with his wife Emily, his younger son Noah, and two cats. Come out to support and enjoy music made by artists of our valley and of the western slope.

Tickets are just $15 for adults and $5 for students. For tickets and more information, call the Center at 349-7487, ext. 1, or visit cretedbuttearts.org.
