Artists

Ensemble: So Percussion

So is: Eric Beach, Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski, and Jason Treuting

Since 1999, So Percussion has been creating music that explores all the extremes of emotion and musical possibility. Although the drum is one of humanity's most ancient instruments, Europe and America have only recently begun to explore its full potential, aided by explosions of influence and experimentation from around the world. In the 20th Century, musical innovators like Edgard Varese, John Cage, Steve Reich, and Iannis Xenakis brought these instruments out from behind the traditional orchestra and gave them new voice. It was excitement about these composers and the sheer fun of playing together that inspired the members of So to begin performing together while students at the Yale School of Music.

Singer: Caroline Shaw

Konzerthaus Berlin

The Konzerthaus Berlin is a concert hall situated on the Gendarmenmarkt, the most beautiful square in the city. Built in 1821, the structure initially served as a theater. Severely damaged in the Second World War, it was rebuilt as a concert hall in 1977, with a neoclassical interior, and changed its name to reflect its new function in 1994. Consistently numbered among the top five concert halls in the world, the Konzerthaus hosts around 500 performances every year, ranging from symphony and chamber concerts featuring international stars to new music and children's concerts.
