Our trip to Canada has been amazing! The facilities at the University of Western are top notch and we have had plenty of time to work up our program for our upcoming shows.
On Thursday, March 16th, we will be performing Rain Tree by Toru Takemitsu and Amores by John Cage, on Sarek's Master's recital. We managed to learn our parts away from each other and put these works together successfully. Thanks to Dr. Jill Ball for coaching us on these works the past couple of days!
This Sunday, March 19th we will be performing a combined concert with the Lamarche Kitai Duo in Toronto, ON at the beautiful Array Space. The program will include Rain Tree by Toru Takemitsu (which we already worked up for Sarek's recital), The Frame Problem by James Romig (which has been a favorite multi-percussion piece of ours), and 60 Frames by Quinn Collins (which is a new piece for us and was composed FOR the 2016 So Percussion Summer Institute).A brief description and program from The Lamarche-Kitai Duo:The Lamarche-Kitai Duo (Austin Lamarche and Stefan Kitai) is a newly formed GTA-based percussion ensemble. They are eager to further explore the contemporary world of percussion and hope to promote the works of Canadian composers.
