Composer Forum: Yousif Sheronick

Event date February 23, 2017 5 - 6pm

Yousif Sheronick has performed around the globe to critical acclaim with leading artists in the classical, world, jazz, and rock music arenas. The New York Times hails Sheronick for his “dazzling improvisations” and his “wizardry on a range of humble frame drums.” Sheronick is the percussionist in duoJalal with partner Kathryn Lockwood (viola). DuoJalal will explore their experiences with classical western composers (including Evan Ziporyn) and how they adapt world and improv elements into their performances. They will present commissions and adaptations from composers Kenji Bunch, Zhao Jiping, and David Krakauer.

Location: Lewis Music Library (14E-109)
Free and open to the public

DuoJalal performs The Rumi Experience on Thursday, February 23, at 8pm in Killian Hall. Learn more
