Sō Percussion, Princeton University’s Edward T. Cone Performers-in-Residence, perform a FREE concert that explores the incredible range of percussion instruments, with guest artist Nicole Lizée, composer/turntables.
What happens in a community when industry leaves? How does a percussion ensemble play a string quartet? How do you respond to John Cage’s assertion that “percussion music is revolution”? These are just some of the questions that Sō Percussion asks in this program, featuring a workshop performance of Julia Wolfe’s work-in-progress String Quartet No. 5 (written as a string quartet, but for percussion); Nicole Lizée White Label Experiment featuring the composer as guest artist on turntables, and Sō Percussion’s original production “From Out a Darker Sea,” an audio-visual exploration of the social history of British coal mining.
Tickets will only become available on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 10AM online and in person during box office hours at the Frist Campus Center and Lewis Arts complex box offices.
Remaining tickets will be available one hour before each concert at the venue.
