EVANSTON — A whole season of great concerts will kick off this Friday, starting at 7 p.m., at Davis Middle School. The concerts continue through May, with music groups visiting Evanston and Bridger Valley from around the globe.

This Friday, Jan.18, Drum Brothers world percussion ensemble will present a high energy performance that celebrates a mix of ethnic and contemporary sounds: West African djembe and doun-doun drums; udu and frame drums; Australian didgeridoo; flute; guitar; vocals; and hand percussion.

As an educational outreach, Drum Brothers will also present music assemblies at North Elementary and Davis Middle School.

Next in line for the series is the La Taifas Quartet, on Jan. 25, a group from Moldavia (former Soviet Union). On Feb. 1, the Presidio Brass from San Diego will perform, and the Evanston Civic Orchestra will appear as a special guest at the end of the program. The hugely popular Vocal Point a cappella group from BYU will perform on Feb. 22.

The series continues on with six more concerts March through May.

Tickets prices are $10 adults, $5 students for each concert, though the annual Concert Series Super Pass is also available, which is good for all nine concerts in the series, including concerts associated with the annual Celtic Festival at the Roundhouse in Evanston. Two more concerts in Kemmerer are also included as a bonus in the pass.

Tickets and season passes can be purchased in Evanston at Curves for Women, Copy Cats and Jewl’s Card & Gift, Evanston Chamber of Commerce, and in the Bridger Valley at Lyman Town Hall and Benedict’s Market.

Tickets are also available online at EvanstonTickets.com. Visit YoungMusicians.net to see the full concert series lineup.

Series concerts are sponsored in part by the Wyoming Arts Council through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
