Presented in partnership with the Percussion Studies at the Butler School of Music and KMFA-FM
The Percussion Collective transcends the medium of percussion through uncommon performance experiences that surprise and engage audiences at a profound emotional level. Artistic Director and percussion luminary Robert van Sice, considered one of the world’s foremost performers of contemporary music for marimba, has assembled a collection of many of today’s brightest percussion stars to bring his unique approach to percussion chamber music to the stage. Featuring players from Europe, Asia, and the US, this new generation of virtuosi represent the leading edge of innovation in concert conception and performance.
The Percussion Collective brings a program that includes Seaborne, an immersive multimedia work that celebrates the beauty of our world’s oceans by Emmy award-winning composer Garth Neustadter and videographer Kjell van Sice. They will also perform Steve Reich’s massive minimalistic work Sextet.
