Jenny Klukken performing Sejourne marimba concerto with Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis

Jenny Klukken will be performing Emmanuel Sejourne’s “Concerto for Marimba and Strings” on November 6th at 3pm with the Civic Orchestra of Minneapolis. The performance will be held at Wayzata Community Church and is free and open to the public.

I will also be performing in this concert in the percussion session. Mark your calendars and come out and see a live marimba concerto being performed. It doesn’t happen that often!

Percussion Axiom TV focuses on John Serry’s “Night Rhapsody”

Percussion Axiom TV, for the next few episodes, is focusing on John Serry’s “Night Rhapsody”. This is one of the most challenging and maybe the most misunderstood marimba pieces in the standard repertoire.

I am a big fan of this series and participated in past episodes where I played Gordon Stout’s Etude #3. For this series I will be following along “from afar” as the technical chops required to play this are beyond what I can handle and I just cannot bring myself to purchase it. I saw Leigh Howard Stevens perform this piece in Wisconsin a number of years ago and I was simply in awe at the discipline it takes to perform it.
