World Premiere // Annenberg Center Debut

With an expansive sonic imagination and “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam,” (The New Yorker) So Percussion has redefined the scope of the percussion ensemble. Making its Annenberg Center debut, the group offers innovative interpretations of modern works by Dessner, Lansky and Cage as well as new compositions by Penn students. “Through a mix of consummate skill and quirky charm, this mercurial quartet has helped to ignite an explosive new enthusiasm for percussion music old and new.” (The New York Times
