KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Percussion quartet Clocks in Motion will perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 4, in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at Western Michigan University.

The performance will be preceded by a 7 p.m. discussion hosted by Dr. Robert White. Tickets are $12 general admission, $10 for seniors and $5 for students, and are available from Miller Auditorium online or by calling (269) 387-2300 or (800) 228-9858.

Clocks in Motion performs new music, builds many of its own instruments, and breaks down the boundaries of the traditional concert program. The ensemble's concert at WMU will include an exciting mixture of music by composers Marc Mellits, Anders Koppel, Andrew Rindfleisch and Matthew Welch. The concert will feature two works with one of the ensemble members performing on the hammer dulcimer. The program will conclude with a rendition of John Cage's classic "Third Construction."
