Mantra Percussion (mantrapercussion.org) will perform Michael Gordon’s evening length work "Timber." Scored for six graduated and amplified wooden Simantra's (2x4’s), it’s a musical tour de force showcasing a range of polyrhythmic layers and textures. Performers include Al Cerulo, Mike McCurdy, Joe Bergen, Joe Tucker, Mark Utley and Chris Graham. Committed to honoring the past and expanding the future of percussion music, Mantra brings to life new works for percussion by living composers, collaborates with artists from diverse genres and styles, and questions what it means to communicate music with percussion instruments.
Cocktails are available for purchase at 6:00 p.m. at Ethel’s Lounge, adjacent to the theater. Seating is available on a first-come first-served basis. Recommended for guests age nine and older.
