Homage on Now is the Time

Velez.jpeg

Percussion sets the scene on Now is the Time, Sunday, September 30th at 10 pm. From Michael Hersch's vast, chime-grounded symphony to drum master Glen Velez's kicky duo, percussion comes out of the background to speak a language all its own. Joel Chadabe blends percussionist Jan Williams's playing with on-the-spot electronic manipulation, giving new meaning to the word "ensemble."

Now is the Time means American contemporary music on WRTI-HD2 and the all-classical stream at wrti.org.

PROGRAM:
Michael Hersch: Symphony No. 1
Joel Chadabe: Many Times Jan
Glen Velez: Homage for Frame Drum and Viola
