Tigerville, SC (March, 8 2024) Sō Percussion will perform at North Greenville University on Friday, March 22, at 7 p.m. in Turner Chapel.

The quartet features the talents of Eric Cha-Beach, Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski, and Jason Treuting. For twenty years and counting, Sō Percussion has redefined chamber music for the 21st century through an “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam” (The New Yorker).

“The thing that’s exciting for me about playing music live is kind of discovering what something is going to be any night,” Treuting said. “Folks in the audience are taking time out of their busy lives to say ‘hey, let’s experience something together.’ By the end of the set, there’s this feeling that we’re all in it together.”

Recent highlights for the group include performances at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Big Ears, and Carnegie Hall, where the group collaborated with Nathalie Joachim and Dominic Shodekeh Talifero.

Sō Percussion’s Nonesuch recording, “Narrow Sea,” with Caroline Shaw, Dawn Upshaw, and Gilbert Kalish, won the 2022 Grammy for Best Composition.

Other recent albums from the quartet include the co-composed cycle with Caroline Shaw, “Let the Soil Play its Simple Part; A Record Of…” on Brassland Music with Buke and Gase, and an acclaimed version of Julius Eastman’s “Stay On It.”

This adds to a catalog of more than twenty-five albums featuring recordings of works by David Lang, Steve Reich, Steven Mackey, and more.
