The MAVerick Ensemble
(Greg Anderson, percussion; Steve Butters, Percussion; Matthew Coley, percussion; Barbara Haffner, cello; Joshua Manchester, percussion; William Jason Raynovich, cello)
Location: The Renaissance Society
Under the title Irregular Doublings, this bill features MAVerick Ensemble percussionists and cellists in works by such diverse composers as American rock music icon Frank Zappa, electronic music icon Mario Davidovsky, Indonesian composer I Wayan Sadra, and MAVerick composer William Jason Raynovich. Each perfomer will have a chance to have the spotlight as a featured soloist in this exciting selection of pieces. The MAVerick Ensemble tries to bring unusual, rarely heard works to Chicago. This concert is no exception, with one world premiere and a couple of Chicago premieres alongside less familiar pieces by prominent composers of the 20th century. Zappa's famous or infamous Black Page will be a treat for all of the Zappa fanatics in Chicago. With all of the percussion music on this program, the evening will surely be one to remember.
