Sights and Sounds on Sundays: Amphion Percussion
SECU Auditorium, East Building
Sean Connors and Peter Zlotnick, the masterminds of Amphion Percussion, explore the repertoire of 20th-century composers such as George Crumb, György Ligeti, Morton Feldman, and Steve Reich on percussive instruments including marimba, vibraphone, drums, wood blocks, and even tuned glass bottles of water. They premiere works written for them by emerging composers as well as their own original compositions and improvisations, and occasionally work from transcriptions of the popular music of Radiohead, the Bad Plus, and Regina Spektor.
For their NCMA concert, Connors and Zlotnick draw from the work of Ligeti, Missy Mazzoli, and John Mayrose.
Experience the sights before the sounds. Docent-led tours tailored to music lovers link art in the Museum to that day's chamber music performance. Make a reservation to join the 1:45 pm preconcert tour online or by calling the Box Office, (919) 715-5923, at least one week in advance.
