3Nights is a series of three portrait concerts that each focus on a collaborative, evening-length presentation of three distinct composers' works featuring percussion. It is a dialogue between artists from disparate styles of music.
The 2015 edition of 3Nights — January 15-16 and April 2 — is co-presented by Arts Brookfield and The Ecstatic Music Festival.
This year's series features Ian Williams —founder/guitarist of powerhouse, power trio: Battles, the composers from Wet Ink — Alex Mincek, Sam Pluta and Eric Wubbels — and the rock sensation Xiu Xiu, with choreographer Deborah Lohse and her Shakedown Dance Collective.
Mantra Percussion announces the formation of Mantra Youth Percussion in conjunction with the Kaufman Center's Special Music School and Face The Music.
Mantra Youth Percussion is an extension of our education initiative to provide the highest-level of music instruction with an emphasis on creativity and artistry. MYP seeks to foster the next generation of performers through masterclasses, one on one instruction, collaborations with professional composers, high-level ensemble playing, and diverse performance opportunities.
