NYU Sandbox Percussion Showcase

1pm doors • 1:30pm show


Hailed by the Washington Post for their “high-end playfulness” and “jaw-dropping virtuosity”, the NYU Sandbox Percussion Showcase is the culmination of the NYU Sandbox Percussion Seminar. Featuring works by Jason Treating and Robert Honstein, the players will conjure eclectic soundscapes from traditional instruments, like marimbas and vibraphones, as well as unorthodox objects like glass bottles, tin cans, and tuned metal pipes. The result is a dazzling showcase of the contemporary percussion ensemble and all that it can do.
