Fresh Sound presents Ian David Rosenbaum, Oct. 1
Rosenbaum will perform on marimba and other percussion instruments at Bread & Salt.
Adventurous music promoter Bonnie Wright continues her dynamic concert series Fresh Sound with an evening of solo percussion by Ian David Rosenbaum on Oct. 1 at Bread & Salt, located at 1955 Julian Ave, at 8 pm.
This is the San Diego debut for Rosenbaum, 25, who will join the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center's CMS Two program as only the second percussionist ever selected. He has already recorded for the Bridge, Cantaloupe, Innova and Naxos recording labels.
His Fresh Sound performance will concentrate on percussion music (with and without electronics), featuring works by Andy Akiho, Frederic Rzewski, Alejandro Vinao and Chris Cerrone.
Wright encountered Rosenbaum in NYC last year right after the big storm.
"When I was in New York during Hurricane Sandy, I was stuck on the Upper West Side for days," recalls Wright. "When the subways were running again, I scurried down to DROM, a club on the Lower East Side to hear some music by Le Train Bleu ensemble. It was snowing and cold and there were not many people in the audience. But the music was terrific, and I heard Ian perform a solo piece, "To The Earth," for flower pots and voice (Rzewski), and I thought he would be a great musician to bring to San Diego."
Tickets are $15 for the general public, $10 for students with ID.
