"The Instrument of Our Time": Live Performance and Lecture by Percussionist Justin Alexander

November 12, 2019 - 1:00 pm to 2:20 pm (already occurred)

Join us in the galleries for a live performance by percussionist Justin Alexander. Drawing inspiration from American jazz, South Indian Carnatic music and Indonesian gamelan, Alexander offers a program highlighting the soloistic aspects of the drum set, which he dubs “the percussion instrument of our time.” Included are performances of “The Drum Also Waltzes” (Max Roach), “Homage to Max” (Rande Sanberg), “Rhagavan” (Russell Hartenberger) and “Monkey Chant” (Glenn Kotche). Discussion will follow.

This program is presented in collaboration with “Experiencing Music,” a course taught by Associate Professor of Music Darryl Harper. This program is supported by there Georges Lurcy Lecture Series Fund. It is free and open to all!
