The Bard College Conservatory of Music has just announced the appointment of So Percussion to its faculty. The members of So Percussion – Eric Beach, Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski, and Jason Treuting – will serve as co-directors of the Conservatory’s undergraduate-only percussion program, which will admit its first students in August of 2011. Joining them on the teaching faculty will be Greg Zuber, Daniel Druckman, and Jonathan Haas. Bard is also home to the John Cage Trust, and the members of So are excited to work more closely with them as the Cage centenary approaches in 2012.
So Percussion most recent recording, Paul Lansky’s Threads (written for So in 2005), will be officially released on Cantaloupe Music in the winter.
