ABOUT PARTICIPANT CONCERTS

 

Participant concerts take place on the 16th and 17. It isn’t possible to accommodate everyone’s full works. Participants are allotted equal performance time based on the total number of participants, and available concert time. Coaches will meet together with Summertrios Directors before the concerts to make any possible adjustments in the allocation of performance time.

PLAY IN THE KEY OF RHYTHM

Work with Summertrios faculty member Shem Guibbory on Steve Reich’s exciting, iconic work Music for Pieces of Wood. Play tuned claves (provided) and breakthrough musical barriers in this fun 5-session program designed to develop your feeling for rhythm, your listening, and your ensemble skills.

 

Prepare for class with pre-recorded practice materials. (You'll receive access in your registration confirmation email.) 

 

Practice claves may be purchased at steveweissmusic.com  

 

Tuned claves will be provided to you at Summertrios.

This ensemble may perform on the Participant Concert.

 

 

An original member of “Steve Reich and Musicians”, Shem performed this work many times with the master percussionists of the ensemble. He will show you how rhythm sings.
