UMBC Presents the 'two' Percussion Duo in Concert

twoThe UMBC Department of Music's Contemporary Concert Series presents the two percussion group, a duo committed to the advancement of new music through performance, education, and experimentation. two was founded in 1998 by Chris Leonard and Dale Speicher, both founding members of the seminal percussion group trio algetic. The music of two invites listeners to investigate the boundaries of complexity and sonority by exploring the world outside of driving repetitive rhythms and, instead, diving into a world of polytonality and polyrhythmic structures. two actively commissions new music for percussion from forward thinking composers throughout the world.

Their program will include All that is Left and Polka in Treblinka by Stuart Saunders Smith, Pairs by Christian Wolff, bicoastal by Roger Zahab, Duo for Marimba and Vibraphone by Gitta Steiner, Verh�lthis (�hneln..) by Franklin Cox, and a new work by Tom Baker
