Micro No. 2 will feature Staying the Course by David Macbride, which expresses through sound the tragic number of casualties in the Iraq War. After the performance, there will be a short discussion of the work and space for group conversation with percussionist Peter Ferry and audience members.
As with all events at Roman Susan, this is a free performance. Micro No. 2 coincides with the gallery's current visual exhibit: http://romansusan.org/saints
Led by local musician Peter Ferry, the Micro-concert Series at Roman Susan presents musical performances in a new format: twenty-minute events highlighting contemporary composition with post-concert space for community discussion.
Praised as a “percussion genius… celebrating percussion in a stunning, thoughtful way,” (Democrat and Chronicle) Rogers Park-based percussion soloist Peter Ferry is quickly gaining recognition for compelling performances of contemporary works by living composers.
