Monster Musik coming to play

Posted on: October 22, 2012

Rolling fog and spider webs will set the stage for the eighth annual performance of Monster Musik, a performance by COM students in the Electric Guitar Orchestra playing spooky classical and classic rock music.

“Two extremes meet,” said director John Kiefer. “It’s rock and heavy metal music but there’s a classical element as well. The electrical guitar gives classical music a different feel.”

Selections include Bach’s “Toccata,” Metallica’s “Battery” and John 5’s “Vertigo.” The performance will also debut a composition by COM student Jonathan Mireles, “Schimbarea Univers.”

Monster Musik will be performed College of the Mainland Recital Hall on Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. Two other performances will be held at the Student Center at 3 p.m. Oct. 31 and at 12:30 p.m. Nov. 1. All performances are free and open to the public.
