The concert is at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Singletary Center for the Arts Concert Hall, but activities get started at 2:15 with a percussion demonstration. The concert, which will include more than 250 instruments and implements, will feature Could Be Anything, an Afro-Cuban-inspired work by UK composition student Brian Nozny; Nozny's arrangement of student composer Joe Carucci's Saturday at the Buckleys, featuring saxophone soloist Miles Osland; and Serving Size Four Bunnies, the Peeps piece, by Carl Schimmel.

The concert, which will include other works as well, is free.
