Music and movement are set to blend in SUU's Satellite Salon Series, a special two-day series of events developed by members of the music and dance departments featuring series creator, Dr. Lynn Vartan, percussionist, and Paul C. Ocampo and Shannon Vance, SUU dance faculty.
They will be joined by harpist Alison Bjorkedal and dancer Lane Gifford. Vartan, Bjorkedal and Ocampo will participate in a master class and Q&A at 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20.
All events will take place at Thorley Recital Hall located on campus in the Music Building. All events are free and opened to the general public. This Satellite Salon Series is comprised of three events over a two-day period. On Friday, January 20, Alison Bjorkedal and Dr. Lynn Vartan will demonstrate instrumental techniques and collaborate with Paul C. Ocampo to create choreography on the spot for SUU and select high school students.
