Music@Noon to get electrified

A current of excitement is expected to run through the crowd at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre Tuesday.

The Nov. 14 instalment of the RBC Foundation Music@Noon Recital Series will feature a performance by Brock’s Devon Fornelli, a percussion instructor, and Gregory Betts, an associate professor in Canadian Modernism and Avant-garde Canadian Poetry, joined by local musician Joe Lapinski.

Taking place at noon in the Cairns Recital Hall, the concert, presented by the Department of Music, will feature Fornelli on the marimba, a deep-toned xylophone, Lapinski on electric guitar and Betts as the narrator.

Fornelli has extensive experience as a soloist, orchestral percussionist and chamber instrumentalist, and in September performed an outdoor percussion improv show in celebration of Culture Days.

Lapinski is an interdisciplinary artist who has been performing, writing and producing music in St. Catharines for the past 18 years, while Betts focus lies on the representation of revolution, insurrection, dislocation and linguistic error in Canadian literature.
