The New York-based ensemble Iktus Combo will perform a contemporary music concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16, at Southeastern Louisiana University’s Pottle Auditorium in Hammond. The event is free.
Iktus Combo is a modern chamber group combining classical music with rock ’n’ roll.
The ensemble comprises four members — Erin Rogers, saxophone; Andrea Lodge, piano; Jay Sorce, electric guitar; and Christopher Graham, percussion.
“Their unique instrumental combination allows them to program interesting pieces of music of many different styles — from experimental to rock and jazz-inspired compositions,” according to Philip Schuessler, Southeastern instructor of music theory and composition.
Iktus Combo will perform “Music Box” by Kari Besharse, a Southeastern lecturer of music, and “Liminal Bridges” by Schuessler. The concert will also feature works by composers Louis Andriessen, Philippe Hurel and Mikel Keuhn.
