Bezanson Recital Hall slowly filled Sunday November 20, 2011; mostly students, with a smattering of families from the area. They had all come out to attend the Advanced Percussion Ensemble held by the College of Humanities and Fine Arts at the University of Massachusetts. The concert began with the song ìCross Hatchî by Toru Takemitsu with Andrew Smith on marimba and Ian Wudyka on vibraphone. The song was a melodic and quite quiet way with both Andrew and Ian playing off each other nicely.

The Lincoln Campus Center Reading Room slowly filled with people on November 9, 2011. The bare concrete room had all makings of an event here at the University of Massachusetts: chairs set up in audience formation, old chipped folding tables lined the back filled with coffee and baked goods. In front two of these same tables came together with a University podium resplendent with the school seal in the middle.
