Beethoven’s pastoral sixth symphony, described by the composer as “Recollections of Country Life,” evokes scenes of nature and the serene beauty of the countryside. Carlos Simon’s lively Four Black American Dances showcases dance styles with cultural significance to Black American communities. Princeton’s own Sō Percussion performs Viet Cuong’s Re(new)al, a fascinating work inspired by the power of hydro, wind, and solar energies.

"Through a mix of consummate skill and quirky charm, this mercurial quartet has helped to ignite an explosive new enthusiasm for percussion music old and new." –The New York Times

Due to the length and type of performance, this concert is not suitable for children under the age of 5.
