The purpose of the arts is not merely to develop the talents of students who major in and plan careers in these fields; it is also to integrate creative work and performance into learning and life on College Hill. After all, students should have meaningful exposure to the arts if they are to be educated fully.
So Percussion has redefined the scope and role of the modern percussion ensemble. The Quartet Reimagined takes a new look at a percussion quartet, taking the audience from Julia Wolfe’s Forbidden Love (written for So), to clinking wine glasses, to Bryce Dessner’s new electric string instruments, to a hybrid piece of percussion and dance.
Featuring recent and historical artworks by thirty individual artists and collectives working across a broad array of different media including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, installation, and artist books.
Opening February 15, 2020.
