Fascinating Rhythm

Our “It’s About Time” percussion festival opens with a program of works suffused with orchestral color and rhythm. Hector Berlioz’s boisterous Roman Carnival contains the Italian saltarello dance at its core. Serge Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5 bristles with energy, often driven by inexorable “tick-tocks” coming from the percussion section. Guest soloist and festival curator Steven Schick will be at the center of a virtual menagerie of wood, metal and skin in Roberto Sierra’s Percussion Concerto.

The Máirtín de Cógáin Project is led by its eponym, Máirtín de Cógáin, a performer of extraordinary talent.

Together, this group brings the story of de Cógáin’s native Cork to an appreciative international following.

Máirtín de Cógáin has performed across his native Ireland, all over the U.S., and beyond. An infectious personality, he easily commands the attention of his audience. If you are lucky enough to catch him spinning a few tales, you are in for a treat.
