LAKE IN THE HILLS – Mallets, Movement and More, an ensemble of fourth- and fifth-grade students from Martin Elementary School, will perform in “An Evening of Percussion” at 7 p.m. Saturday at Raue Center for the Arts, 26 N. Williams St. in Crystal Lake.

The Mallets, Movement and More group, led by Martin music teachers Ingrid and Brent Mullane, showcases the skills and talents of the students and provides an opportunity for early musical leadership, connecting schools with the community through a positive artistic outlet.

“The students have worked hard to learn some challenging music using barred mallet percussion instruments, hand percussion, drums, recorders and other instruments, and are very excited at the opportunity to perform in such a great venue,” according to a news release.

Group members are Lydia Sciascia, Mikayla Madsen, Patricia Swierczek, Jack Szmergalski, Angel Wat, Elizabeth Troy, Carter Betz, Michael King, Connor Burns, Jensen Jones, Zachary Isenegger, Emma Arnold, Kayla Yakimisky, Emma Cross, Kaylin Drag, Jack Harper, Noelle DeRennaux, Victoria Smolen, Grace Gato, Garrett Anderson, Madison Field, Allison Koch and Noelle Tuegel.

“An Evening of Percussion” will feature performances by the Crystal Lake Strikers All-Star Drumline – made up of adult drummers and talented high school drummers – along with a variety of percussionists and ensembles from Crystal Lake and surrounding communities.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $5 for children ages 8 to 17; children 7 and under are admitted free. They are available online at http://rauecenter.org or by calling the Raue Center Box Office at 815-356-9212.
