Modern Percussion Concert

I was made aware of the Chicago debut of this excellent percussionist by none other than the musician himself, who has joined our group. Great chance to check out the Constellation performance space and see a great number of interesting composers (including one of my favorite composer names: JacobTV!). Cheap: $10 tickets

Peter Ferry is a young percussion soloist quickly gaining recognition for meaningful, compelling performances that re-imagine the classical concert experience through contemporary repertoire and interdisciplinary collaborations.

    Hi all: I regret that I cannot make it, I am still writing something for work that I need to finish tonight, I have run out of time. Very sorry Peter but good luck and everyone enjoy!

    Hi Brandon, Roman Susan + Sse are folks of other names, and we will be bringing other people with us as well. Most likely we'll be at least Kristin, Nathan, and Ivy, (and possibly others).

    I will aim to look for you, and sitting together sounds good! -Nathan (medium long brown hair, glasses, looking for yourself)

      Thanks, unfortunately I represent only myself by name so I am not as interesting. See you there.

    For those not performing, would you like to meet around 815 to say hello and possibly sit together? This is my first time in this space and it appears to be general admission. We can also say hi after as well. Good luck Peter! Roman: I am not sure if you are a person or a gallery. Sse: welcome and please tell me how to say your name.
