“This is going to be an incredibly unique and memorable performance by four exceptionally talented musicians,” she said.

“I invite percussion enthusiasts and those completely new to the music of percussion ensembles to join us,” Bergmann added.

The group consists of four classically trained musicians who will play a wide range of percussive instruments.

The performers have appeared at numerous festivals of new music and world music and collaborated with some of the percussion world’s finest artists, including Bob Becker, Aiyun Huang, Beverley Johnston, and Terry Longshore.
