SōSI 2021 goes REMOTE – and we are re-opening applications!

Dear Friends,

Since we officially “closed” the application period for the 2021 Sō Percussion Summer Institute last month, a LOT has happened, including new information from our partners at Princeton, and new confirmations from guest artists.So here are the updates:

  • This year’s SōSI is going to be remote – it is NOT an in-person festival. It still runs July 11-25, 2021, and will involve a range of synchronous and asynchronous work. (This means you can join from ANYWHERE!)
  • With this new information in mind, we are re-opening applications and accepting musicians of ALL practices (not just percussionists and composers).
  • Guest artists and faculty include:
Composer in Residence – Nathalie Joachim
