Music » Choice Concerts



If you're like me and you've had it up to your ears with grey skies, get up off your sofa and turn your cabin fever into foot-stomping, body-moving percussion fever. This weekend composer and percussion guru Ivan Trevino leads Rebecca Gilbert, flute, Melissa Matson, viola, and Kathleen Murphy Kemp, cello, in a concert that includes the world premiere of his "Chamber Riffs." It's classical crossover, but not without its roots. The program also includes an adaptation of J.S. Bach's "Gamba Sonata in G Major." And, if I still haven't grabbed you, how about "Taming the Ox" by composer Stephen Rush, who will be part of the performance. Rush, who earned his doctorate at Eastman School of Music, has credits on over 30 CDs, ranging from electronic experimental to jazz.

"Re:Percussion" takes place Sunday, February 17, 7:30 p.m. at First Unitarian Church, 220 Winton Road South.$5-$10 ($20 family). 271-9070,
