Music

By Russell Florence, Jr.

So Percussion, a quintet that specializes in unique sounds, will perform Thursday, September 30 at 8 p.m. in the Boll Theatre of Kennedy Union at the University of Dayton, 300 College Park. Formed at the Yale School of Music in 1999 and consisting of Eric Beach, Josh Quillen, Adam Silwinksi and Jason Treuting, So Percussion relishes its experimental nature. They have explored many aspects of sound programming, including duct tape, vibraphones, bowed marimba, toy piano and glockenspiel. The troupe has performed across the U.S. including Carnegie Hall and received international acclaim from appearances in Russia, Australia, Italy and Germany to name just a few. They have also received rave notices from The New York Times and Billboard magazine. Notable projects include Imaginary City, a “sonic meditation on urban soundscapes” commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s 2009 Next Wave Festival. Tickets are priced at $15 (general admission), $10 (seniors and UD faculty, staff and alumni) and $5 (UD students). For additional information, call the UD box office at (937) 229-2545 or the UD Arts Series at (937) 229-2787 or visit http://ArtsSeries.Udayton.edu
