Join us at the Garden Theater as Mantra Percussion performs Michael Gordon’s evening length work, "Timber" (2009). Scored for six graduated and amplified wooden Simantra's (2x4’s), it’s a musical tour de force showcasing a range of polyrhythmic layers and textures.
Performers include Al Cerulo, Mike McCurdy, Joe Bergen, Joe Tucker, Mark Utley and Chris Graham. Committed to honoring the past and expanding the future of percussion music, Mantra brings to life new works for percussion by living composers, collaborates with artists from diverse genres and styles, and questions what it means to communicate music with percussion instruments.
Starting at 6:00, cocktails will be available for purchase at Ethel’s Lounge, adjacent to the theater.
Seating is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis. Recommended for guests age nine and older. Parking is available at a lot just south of the theater and at nearby meters. Free street parking is available after 6:00 p.m. on the south side of Fifth Avenue west of High Street around the corner from the theater
