So Percussion: A Gun Show

8:00 PM-10:00 PM 

College of the Holy Cross: Fenwick Hall Theatre
1 College Street

FREE and open to the public.

A Gun Show is an exploration of issues such as race, economic inequality, public safety and constitutional rights through music, text and movement. The works origins started as a way for the artists to process their emotions after the unfathomable school shootings in Newtown, CT but has since grown into a much larger collaborative process and conversation. What is it about our collective psyche that fastens so tightly to guns?

With its innovative multi-genre original productions, sensational interpretations of modern classics, and exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam(The New Yorker), S Percussion redefines the scope of the modern percussion ensemble. For over 15 years, this ensemble, formed by Eric Beach, Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski, and Jason Treuting, has engaged in creative collaborations and released 18 albums.
