Sō Percussion with Caroline Shaw
March 29, 2024
Witness a dynamic performance from the internationally celebrated quartet Sō Percussion together with Pulitzer Prize-winning singer Caroline Shaw. Experience contemporary percussion and spellbinding vocals in a genre-bending program featuring scores from their recently released album “Let the Soil Play Its Simple Part.”
For over 20 years, Sō Percussion has redefined chamber music for the 21st century through an “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam.” They are celebrated by audiences and presenters for a dazzling range of work and for live performances in which “telepathic powers of communication” bring to life the vibrant percussion repertoire. Their extravagant array of collaborations in classical music, pop, indie rock, contemporary dance, and theater and their work in education and community create opportunities and platforms for music and artists that explore the immense possibility of art in our time.
Caroline Shaw moves among roles, genres, and mediums, trying to imagine a world of sound that has never been heard before but has always existed. She works often in collaboration with others, as a producer, composer, violinist, and vocalist, a versatile skill set she utilizes on tour with Sō Percussion. Caroline is recipient of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Music and her vocal work is featured with commissions written for Yo-Yo Ma, the LA Philharmonic, Rosalía (MOTOMAMI), and premieres with GRAMMY-winning contemporary ensemble Roomful of Teeth.
