The percussion program as well as the Vandeventer percussion program will present its free concert, Rhythm Flight, Thursday at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.

“[The concert] is primarily an opportunity for students to play literature written specifically for percussion, featuring them as individual players and in smaller groups,” percussion director Robert Brannock said. “Band music is often about the whole, but percussion ensembles often give more focus and attention to the individual.
