Spring 2022

Andrew Drury & The Forest

The Forest is a collective percussion quintet with roots in Contemporary New Music and African-Diasporic musics that prioritizes improvisation and collaborative composition. Initiated by Andrew Drury the Forest features percussionist/composers from New York and San Diego: Gustavo Aguilar, Leah Bowden, Lesley Mok, and Michael Wimberly, in addition to Drury.

The Forest will perform new, original compositions including (D)ruminations for Edward Blackwell: Mu First Part and Mu Second Part by Andrew Drury, and Sound Field 1 by the group. There will also be a concert in ROD at 8 pm on April 5!

This event is made possible with the support of Continuum Culture & Arts, and Jazz Road, a national initiative of South Arts, which is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
