Albert Hinds Plaza, 55 Witherspoon St., Princeton, NJ
Acclaimed ensemble and Princeton University Edward T. Cone Ensemble-in-Residence Sō Percussion leads its ninth annual Sō Percussion Summer Institute (SōSI), an intensive two-week chamber music seminar for college-age percussionists and composers on the Princeton University campus and throughout the Princeton community.
From July 16-30, there are a total of eight concerts performed by SōSI students and Sō Percussion, all free and open to the public. Following the theme of “New Beginnings,” this summer’s Institute offers a focus on repertoire from the early and mid 20th Century, in which percussion composers like John Cage imagined a world of “organized sound,” where music consisted of more than just keyboard tones.
