Duo Music for Viola and Percussion
Presented by Michael Hall, viola and Joby Burgess, percussion

This dynamic duo will present contemporary music for the distinctive combination of viola and percussion.  They will examine musical and technical considerations unique to this instrumentation and offer an extraordinary performance of virtuosic music.  Michael Hall lives in Chicago and has performed and taught across Europe, Asia and the United States and believes strongly in the expressive power of collaborating with diverse disciplines in the arts.  Joby Burgess is one of Britain’s most diverse percussionists and is dedicated to the development of the percussion repertoire, often in combination with electronics.
