Black Crow Set to Revisit Boston, Massachusetts

After a successful May 2011 with the group Dinosaur Annex, Ms. Oh’s viola concerto Black Crow (2011) is set to return to Boston Massachusetts. The piece, which features viola, bass clarinet and percussion, is being revived by the percussionist Bob Schulz at Tufts University. Black Crow is a piece that displays virtuosic passages on both the viola and percussion, and as such Schultz is featuring the piece in his percussion recital as a part of the Tufts University Community Concert Series.

Violinist Noriko Herndon and clarinetist William Kirkley join the performance, in which Mr. Schulz will be presenting a program of contemporary works for percussion solo, duo, and trio. Along with Black Crow, the dramatic and virtuosic compositions of Luciano Berio, Michael Colgrass and Stefan Hakenberg will be presented. The program will take place in the Distler Performance Hall (room M251) located in the Granoff Music Building at Tufts University.
