About The Event

Committed to honoring the past and expanding the future of percussion music, Mantra Percussion brings to life new works by living composers, collaborates with artists from diverse genres and styles, and questions what it means to communicate music through percussion instruments. Mantra Percussion engages new audiences by challenging the standard concert format through evening-length events that look toward a grander artistic vision. Hailed by the New York Times as “finely polished. . . a fresh source of energy,” Mantra Percussion has commissioned or premiered over 40 new works for percussion ensemble since it formed in 2009. They perform Michael Gordon’s evening-length percussion sextet Timber, which they co-commissioned; they also gave the work’s US premiere.

$25, CMA members $22.
