Guest Recital: John Luther Adam’s Songbirdsongs: Music for Flute and Percussion

Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center, 405 SE Spokane Street, Pullman, WA

About the event

Pulitzer Prize winning composer, John Luther Adams has been lauded for “melding the physical and musical worlds into a unique artistic vision that transcends stylistic boundaries.” His rarely performed work, Songbirdsongs for piccolos, percussion, and other instruments, explores the beauty of nature’s music through “translation” and “evocation” of birdsong. Along with Songbirdsongs, other works for flute and percussion will be performed by guest artists Tessa Brinckman (flute) and Terry Longshore (percussion) of Caballito Negro, Chris Whyte (percussion), and WSU faculty Dave Jarvis (percussion) and Sophia Tegart (flute).
