KSC Percussion Ensemble
Redfern Arts Center - Alumni Recital Hall
Wednesday, April 01, 2015 · 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
The KSC Percussion Ensemble spans the globe: Ghana, New York City, Trinidad/Tobago, Hawaii, Japan, and Londonderry, NH. From African influence comes Steve Reich’s Music for Pieces of Wood, a work of minimalism based on Reich’s study in Ghana. The New York School is represented by John Cage’s Credo in US, which will feature Professor Maura Glennon on piano. An Old Time Pan Medley will represent Trinidad and Tobago and the origins of the steel drum.
Hawaiian Chant is the basis for Christopher Rouse’s Ku-Ka-Ilimoku (the Hawaiian God of War). Minoru Miki’s Z Conversion is inspired by his hometown of Tokushima, Japan (home to the Zomeki rhythm used in the Awa dance). Londonderry, New Hampshire is also on the tour with the premier of Josh Brennan’s Pursuit. Join the KSC Percussion Ensemble and directors, Christopher Swist and Murray Mast for a trip to 6 distinct locales in 6 distinct musical styles.
