The NWS Percussion Fellows are ready to rock out on everything from drums, whistles, harmonicas to even trash. Composer Nathaniel Stookey scavenged a city dump to create his symphony of garbage, Junkestra. Stookey joins the Fellows with instruments he created from bike wheels, bird cages and other recycled material. György Ligeti’s song cycle pairs random Hungarian words and nonsense text with slide whistles and harmonicas. Ligeti wrote the work for Hungarian mezzo-soprano Katalin Károlyi, who also joins the Fellows in this performance. Surrounded by a battery of friends, the timpani takes center spotlight in Akira Nishimura’s Concerto, while Andy Akiho channels the rhythms of the city in to wALk Or ruN in wEst harlem, originally written for the Bang on a Can collective.
