The concert will also contain a piece called “Sleep” by Eric Whitacre to honor alumnus John Larson ’18, who passed away last summer. Dustin Eckmann ’16, Justin Hall ’16, Erik Wilson ’17 are all alumni who knew John, and they will be participating in the performance of this piece. John was a treasured member of the Carthage percussion studio and was a very talented percussionist, with marimba being his favorite instrument. During his time at Carthage, John performed many impressive marimba solos that surely showcased his dedication and love for percussion.
