Yale Percussion Group plays high-energy program of Reich Sextet and more

The Yale School of Music will present the Yale Percussion Group on Friday, December 10, 2010 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall (470 College Street, New Haven). Renowned percussionist and educator Robert van Sice directs the ensemble, which has been called “something truly extraordinary” by composer Steve Reich.

Reich’s Sextet for keyboards and percussion is on the program, which also features Thierry de Mey’s intricately choreographed Musique de Tables, James Wood’s visceral Village Burial with Fire, and Mauricio Kagel’s Dressur. The theatrical Dressur thoroughly engaged New Haven audiences when it was performed in the Chamber Music Competition Winners’ Concert last May.

This concert is a free preview of the YPG’s Yale in New York concert at Carnegie Hall on Sunday, December 12. The members of the Yale Percussion Group, all graduate students at the Yale School of Music, are Yun-Chu Candy Chiu, Michael Compitello, John Corkill, Leonardo Gorosito, Ian Rosenbaum, and Adam Rosenblatt.
