Green Stairwell Concert Series I.II: Analogy Fair

  • Westmoreland Congregational UCC 1 Westmoreland Circle Dr. Bethesda, MD, 20816 (map)

Virtuosic percussion meets theatrical absurdity. Featuring QuaQuaQua, percussion ensemble.

What do you think when you see "percussion ensemble"?
Drums? Marimba? Timpani?

One of the goals of Green Stairwell Concert Series is to show audiences how living composers have left us needing something beyond the traditional concert format, and part of that includes seeing how much more versatile performers have become as a result.

QuaQuaQua presents an engrossing and highly unorthodox program of theatrical contemporary music, including pieces for amplified table tops, virtuosic knife and hammer work, fingers in ears, and perhaps even Nintendo Wii controllers. Come buy, sell, and trade in the deviant world of analogies with QuaQuaQua!
