     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University Department of Fine and Performing Arts presents the duo Balanced Structure on percussion. The recital will take place on Monday, May 2 at 6 p.m. in the Pottle Auditorium located at Southeastern’s Pottle Music Building.  
     The event is free and open to the public.
     Balanced Structure is comprised of a new charismatic percussion duo, Kathryn Irwin and Emily Strachan. Both currently reside in Lansing, Mich., and attend Michigan State University.
     Their core consists of commissioning new works, performing music by living composers, and bringing light to percussion pieces that are undervalued in the United States.
     “Through masterclasses, clinics, and live performances, Kathryn and Emily seek to provide audiences with a moving musical experience through their creative manipulation of sound,” said Victor Drescher, instructor of clarinet and assistant director of bands at Southeastern.
     The concert series will include pieces by composers Alejandro Viñao, Joe Moore III, Elliott Carter, Kevin Volans, Peter Klatzow, and Elliot Cole.  Two of the pieces they will perform are new commissions they premiered earlier this month.
