THEN, at 8:30pm, doors open to the public for NIGHT OF AWESOMENESS (included in the VIP ticket, or available for $20 per person).
What does this mean?
A «Night of Awesomeness» is a variety sh...ow of our favorite music and people. It has no consistent theme other than «awesomeness,» which is arbitrated by what we like. Some of the most fascinating people we've ever known and worked with have agreed to join us for this party, It ranges from hard-hitting contemporary classical music to toe-tappers and show stoppers.
The incredible lineup includes:
Balún, with Angelica Negron, a collaborator we've known for awhile. Angelica will be writing a new work for So Percussion this summer. Balun grew out of the indie scene in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Grey Mcmurray is featured on our studio album «Where (we) Live.» His guitar mastery and sensitive composition makes him an enthralling figure in our scene.
Damsell is a unique neo-folk duo whose songwriting style borrows from bluegrass, folk, contemporary classical, and many other influences.
Sandbox Percussion represents the next generation of frighteningly gifted chamber music groups, a wave that has followed our work.
Dither Quartet is the ensemble-in-residence for this year's So Percussion/New Music USA residency program. We share the kinship of «four-of-the-same» groups. We have worked with many of the same composers from the New York and Brooklyn scenes.
Bobby Previte wrote «Terminals,» one of the most sprawling and ambitious pieces we've ever played. Having made his way in the jazz and experimental «downtown» scenes, he also retains a love for the percussion ensemble tradition of John Cage.
Shara Nova, aka My Brightest Diamond, is a true force of nature. We are delighted that she agreed to take a break from her tour with tune-yards to join us! Our collaborative project «Timeline» has toured to Carnegie Hall, The University of Texas at Austin, UCLA Live, and other venues. She travels between the indie rock and classical worlds with grace, glory, and tremendous joy!
