“Beyond virtuosic… consummate skill and quirky charm" 

The New York Times

With innovative multi-genre original productions and sensational interpretations of modern classics, So Percussion is pushing its voice to the forefront of American musical culture. The group has an adventurous spirit written into its DNA, passed down from composers like John Cage and Steve Reich, and from pioneering ensembles like the Kronos Quartet and Nexus Percussion. Since its founding in 1999, So Percussion has amassed a body of work that includes over 20 albums, a dizzying array of collaborative projects, and a steady output of its own music. Hailed by The Cincinnati Enquirer as “rock stars of the percussion world,” So Percussion has appeared at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Stanford Live, and Texas Performing Arts. In addition, a recent residency at London’s Barbican Centre, as well as tours to Western Europe, South America, Russia and Australia, have brought the group international acclaim. Members of the JMU Percussion Ensemble will play one number with So Percussion. www.sopercussion.com

This engagement of So Percussion is made possible through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. www.midatlanticarts.org
