Many thanks to the University of Michigan Percussion Ensemble (Jonathan Ovalle, director) for their excellent performance of Austerity Measures on March 30th.
I don’t often get to travel to performances of my music, so it was a treat to make the short drive to Ann Arbor to hear the concert.
The program was excellent; all of the works had some great theatrics, timbres, and complex interactions among the ensemble. The students played wonderfully.
The beginning of the month of March saw two great performances of Austerity Measures.
On March 5, EP4 ensemble à percussion gave the Canadian premiere of Austerity Measures at the Espace Hypérion Québec in Québec City.
On March 9, the Portland Percussion Group include the piece on their tour program in Washington State including visits to Pacific Lutheran University and Seattle Pacific University.
