Mask Symphony--March 11

For all of you music and art lovers, the Meramec Symphonic Band will be joined by mask-maker Rob Faust in a concert that combines music and masks in creative and surprising ways. "Face: The Music, a Symphony of Masks" uses the music of conductor/composer Gary Gackstatter to animate Faust's many mask characters, combining music and visual arts.

The concert, which will also feature the Meramec Choir and Chamber Choir is Thursday, March 11th, at 7:30pm in the Meramec Theatre (building TH on the map, on the west side of the STLCC Meramec campus). The concert is free and open to the public and with Gary Gackstatter conducting promises to be an exciting and entertaining event!

Rob Faust, a native of New Orleans now living in Canada, has a background in dance, comedy, theatre and mime. He will be on the Meramec campus for two days giving workshops, which are also free to students and the public.
