Joined by innovative percussion soloist Peter Ferry, the Sound ExChange Orchestra presents an immersive concert experience comprised of works by Barber, Bruckner, Didkovsky, Evans, Macbride, and ter Veldhuis as part of a collaboration featuring original multimedia works designed by four professors from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Led by music director Danko Drusko and artistic director Emily Wozniak, Sound ExChange is devoted to exploring alternative ways of presenting music to provide invigorating concert experiences for all audiences. www.soundexchangeorchestra.com
Hailed by The Democrat and Chronicle as a "percussion genius... presenting percussion in a stunning, thoughtful way," Ferry's performances regularly challenge and entertain audiences with visual and social experiences that deepen the concert experience. www.PeterFerry.com
All Eyes and Ears showcases the work of four RIT professors: Joe Geigel (Computer Science), Michelle Harris (Interactive games and Media), Susan Lakin (Photographic Arts and Sciences), and Marla Schweppe (Computer Graphics Design).
For "The Nostalgia Project," every audience member will be invited to share a photo from his or her phone that recalls a special memory. These images will appear during the performance as a shared collective experience of memory through music.
