Junkestra is a massive percussion work performed on items rescued from a dump: sewer pipes, deck railings, dresser drawers, bike wheels, saws, bathroom fixtures, and bird cages. This work was performed to great acclaim at the hall of the San Francisco Symphony in 2010 and this will be its New England premiere.

The Boston Percussion Group will be fill out the rest of the program with their spectacular blend of virtuosic percussion, including works by Steve Reich and Radiohead.

Described as “audacious and impressive” by The Boston Globe, Boston Percussion Group (BPeG) is part new music group and part rock band, challenging the definition of classical music with the use of marimbas, drums, flower pots, and more. With repertoire ranging from Steve Reich and Frank Zappa to Tan Dun and Sufjan Stevens, BPeG presents high-energy performances whether in a concert hall, museum or public park. Comprised of a core group of musicians, BPeG draws inspiration from local composers and other collaborators and has shared their music at festivals and universities throughout New England.

“The five members of BPeG…were almost absolutely perfect.”
“…expert and vivid…full of shading and detail…”
–The Boston Musical Intelligencer

pindrop is...
a ticketed, classical-ish performance series taking place the first sunday night of every month at the aeronaut taproom in somerville, shining light on the ridiculous pleasure of collective listening. no stodginess. no competing sound. just sweet, shared silence, beautiful beers, and beautiful people. please stay for an after-party with the artists.
