New Classical Featured Artist – 12/20/21 – 01/02/22
In this week’s playlist, we bring you performances by a group that is programming a diverse range of voices, commissioning flexible new works, and re-imagining educational programs. That ensemble is Sō Percussion. They are a percussion-based music organization that creates and presents new collaborative works to adventurous and curious audiences and educational initiatives to engaged students, while providing meaningful service to its communities, in order to exemplify the power of music to unite people and forge deep social bonds. Since their first performance as a student ensemble in 1999, Sō Percussion has appeared at many of the most prestigious concert halls and festivals around the world, including Carnegie Hall, the Paris Philharmonie, the Barbican Centre, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Walt Disney Hall with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, the Lincoln Center Festival, and many more. They are currently in their eighth year as Edward T. Cone performers-in-residence at Princeton University.
