Our first re:Percussion concert a few seasons back was met with overwhelmingly positive acclaim - so we bring you another evening of eclectic, outside-the-box chamber music! We've invited a few of our colorful musician friends to bring a marimba, some drums and ethnic instruments, and brilliant creativity! Join us for a fresh re-interpretation of Bach's Sonata in G major for Gamba and Harpsichord (we'll have neither), an improvisation by Stephen Rush created for Rebecca Gilbert and any combination of any other instruments, a WORLD PREMIERE by Ivan Trevino, and much more.
