     HAMMOND – The New York-based ensemble Iktus Combo will perform a contemporary music concert on Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 7:30 p.m. at Southeastern Louisiana University’s Pottle Auditorium.  This event is free and open to the public.
     Iktus Combo is a modern chamber group combining classical music with rock-n-roll, making the composition comfortable in both acoustic and electric settings. The ensemble is comprised of four members: Erin Rogers, saxophone; Andrea Lodge, piano; Jay Sorce, electric guitar; and Christopher Graham, percussion.  
     “Their unique instrumental combination allows them to program interesting pieces of music of many different styles – from experimental to rock and jazz-inspired compositions,” according to Philip Schuessler, Southeastern instructor of music theory and composition.
     Iktus Combo will perform “Music Box” by Kari Besharse, a Southeastern lecturer of music, and “Liminal Bridges” by Schuessler.  The concert will also feature works by composers Louis Andriessen, Philippe Hurel, and Mikel Keuhn.
     For more information, contact Schuessler 985-549-5035.
