Concert To Honor Paul Elisha
The University at Albany Department of Music and Theatre will honor the late Paul Elisha on Monday. The poet, musician, veteran, activist, journalist, radio host, and familiar voice on WAMC passed away in August.
Monday's program called Twenty Drummers Drummin' will feature a performance of "Drums and Echoes," a work composed by Elisha and Richard Albagli, Principal Percussionist with the Albany Symphony Orchestra, co-founder of the Adirondack Percussion Ensemble, and a member of the music faculties of the University at Albany and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
WAMC's Lucas Willard spoke to Albagli about the piece written in remembrance of World War II.
