Steve Reich Celebration with Sō Percussion and NEXUS Percussion @ Princeton University


Sō Percussion, Princeton University’s Edward T. Cone Artists-in-Residence, host a celebration—free and open to all—of iconic American composer Steve Reich. The program samples works from each decade of the composer’s prolific career. Sō Percussion will be joined onstage by vocalist Beth Meyers, soprano Daisy Press, guitarist Grey McMurray, pianists Orli Shaham and Corey Smythe, and cellist Maya Beiser. Ms. Beiser will perform Cello Counterpoint, written for her by Reich in 2003. The concert will culminate with Reich’s breakthrough masterpiece, Drumming, which Sō Percussion had performed at the Lincoln Center Festival in Fall 2017 to critical acclaim.
