Julie Spencer at NIU

Marimba artist Julie Spencer is at NIU this week, performing in concert Wednesday, October 8 at 8:00 p.m. in the Music Building Recital Hall, along with her husband, Gernot Blume. This morning Julie gave a clinic and presented a masterclass. It's always fun to see Julie in a clinic setting - I don't think I've ever heard her say the same thing twice, yet there's definitely a "thread" to what she has to say - be human, create meaningful music, don't force things. I can tell you that she's playing as great as ever, which is so great to see and hear. If you're near DeKalb on Wednesday the 8th, stop in for her concert.
