Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings.

This Pop-Up shines a spotlight on “percussion virtuoso” (New York Times) Doug Perkins, solo and in duet with cellist Lauren Radnofsky. Perkins showcases the percussionist’s versatility with two works by America’s leading composers: David Lang’s Stuttered Chant, which employs a cello as its percussion instrument of choice; and Caroline Shaw’s Boris Kerner, which demands flower pots. Perkins will also give the world premiere of a solo work by Ken Thomson and his interpretation of Xenakis’ seminal Psappha

All concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
