Kanit, a local percussion group, will debut its 2011 show, "Construction Zone,'' at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Hollidaysburg Area Senior High?School?auditorium.
Joining Kanit on stage this year are two new percussion ensembles.
KrEw is a subgroup of Kanit designed to teach and prepare students techniques utilized in percussion ensembles while serving as a training group for Kanit. Stikz is a newly formed high school percussion ensemble with nonstop energy and dynamic performance.
After countless hours of preparation, this group of junior and senior high students will dazzle fans of all ages with a heart-pounding display, unmatched in the Blair County area.
The 30 dedicated students of the Hollidaysburg Area School District will astound the audience with nonstop energy, crowd interaction, and synchronized rhythms coming from trash cans to junkyard scraps, and marching percussion.
The director of the group is local teacher Dan Harber.
Having produced and directed Kanit's 2009 and 2010 performance, Harber has been writing percussion pieces since he was a member of Lidz.
Tickets are available at the door the night of the concert. Tickets are $3 for adults and $2 for students and senior citizens.
