So Percussion to Perform Free Concert at Richardson
So Percussion will offer the first of two free performances in Princeton as part of their Edward T. Cone Residency at Princeton University. On Friday, September 16, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium at Alexander Hall, the community has the opportunity to engage in a striking range of music — from John Cage’s Living Room Music transforming household items into instruments, to the world premiere of Emeritus Professor Paul Lansky’s Springs. Also on the program is Taxidermy, specially written for Princeton alum and Pulitzer-prize winning composer Caroline Shaw, as well as the ensemble’s first major commission: David Lang’s the so-called laws of nature. Tickets are required for this free concert. Reservations can be made in advance online only at tickets.princeton.edu.
So Percussion’s second free concert as part of their residency will be a celebration of Steve Reich, including a pre-concert discussion with the composer, on March 14, 2017. Tickets for that event are not yet available.
