The Arts Council's Classics Concert Series returns in March with a performance by Greg Jukes.

Jukes creates musical experiences that expand the boundaries of traditional performance. Jukes will bring his talents to First Presbyterian Church in Downtown Evansville on March 13 with a solo vibraphone performance.

The Classics Concert Series is presented by the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana with help from First Presbyterian Church. The series features classical music groups performing in area churches.

All concerts in the series are free and open to the public. Seating may be limited.

The second Classics Concert performance in 2020 will feature the Indiana University African American Choral Ensemble. The group will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 29 at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church.

More about Greg Jukes:

As a member of The Fourth Wall, he explores a new hybrid of the performing arts in which classically-trained instrumentalists are also dancers and actors. The Fourth Wall performs across North America to high praise at Fringe theatre festivals, encourages college students to think outside the box, and teaches grade school students about the science of sound. With Kadence Arts, Greg developed the Beat Bus, an electronic bucket drumming workshop that gets kids around New England excited about music through a mix of technology, movement, and grooves. In the Marimba Cabaret, Greg accompanies and directs singing marimbist, Brian Calhoon in evenings of songs and stories. As a narrator, Greg has introduced thousands of children and families to the wonders of orchestral music with established pieces like “Peter and the Wolf” and shows he has written around works such as Wagner’s “Ring Cycle,” Holst’s “The Planets,” and Copland’s music inspired by the American west. Greg holds a BM in Percussion Performance from the Peabody Conservatory.
