Guest marimba recital is February 23


The Adams State University Department of Music will host Christopher Wilson, guest marimba artist, in concert at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, in Leon Memorial Hall. 

Wilson, a doctoral candidate in percussion performance at the University of Northern Colorado, is a fast-rising artist who has appeared as soloist, chamber musician and clinician throughout the United States.

As a soloist, Wilson helped introduce the marimba to public audiences in settings outside of the concert hall, including coffee shops, libraries, art galleries, assisted living centers, and more. He has also appeared as guest artist at the Western Colorado Percussion Festival, College Music Society conferences, and many collegiate campuses. He is an active chamber musician, most notably as a member of the Wilson Duo with wife, bassoonist Jacqueline Wilson. The Wilson duo has presented recitals at the 2013 International Double Reed Society Convention and on Wisconsin Public Radio.

As a doctoral candidate, Wilson was a graduate teaching assistant to Professor Gray Barrier. He also studied wind conducting as a student of Dr. Kenneth Singleton. He finished his D.A. coursework in Spring, 2015, and is currently ABD. He is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory and Eastern Washington University. His principal teachers include Gray Barrier, Nancy Zeltsman and Martin Zyskowski. He is a sponsored member of Pearl Drums' Regional Education Arts Program and an endorser of Encore Mallets.
