NYU Sandbox Percussion Showcase

12:30pm doors • 1pm show


Hailed by the Washington Post for their “high-end playfulness” and “jaw-dropping virtuosity”, Sandbox Percussion present the NYU Sandbox Percussion Showcase, the culmination of their annual percussion seminar, featuring works by Andy Akiho, Erich Barganier, Viet Cuong, Lou Harrison, Amy Beth Kirsten, and Julia Wolfe. 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.
