Composer David Colson, who founded the new music ensemble Birds On A Wire not long after joining the WMU School of Music in 2007, previewed the group's concert with Cara Lieurance. It's set for  7:30 pm on Wednesday, Oct 30 in the Dalton Center Recital Hall. Not only is it "themed" for Halloween, it will feature the world premiere of Colson's Ghost Music, a new piece for solo marimba. Colson talks about writing the pieces for Matthew Coley, a leading solo percussionist and a master of an array of global percussion instruments.
