A series of percussion concerts and master classes by renowned & emerging percussionists, including a solo concert by Steven Schick
and a world premiere composition by Roger Reynolds

February 25 to March 1, 2019

Cross-Wired is unique: in a week-long set of concerts and master classes, seven young percussionists from North America and Europe will be in residence at UC San Diego to study a new work for percussion solo by Pulitzer-Prize winning composer and University Professor, Roger Reynolds . The new work, for percussion with text by Samuel Beckett , will be coached by Cross-Wired host Steven Schick , along with Reynolds, Theatre and Dance faculty member Eva Barnes and two distinguished alumni of UC San Diego: Aiyun Huang ( University of Toronto ) and Ivan Manzanilla ( University of Guanajuato ).
Open to the public are afternoon masterclasses, a daily informal concert at 5:00 and two concerts in the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall. 

On Wednesday, February 27, Distinguished Professor Steven Schick will present a solo concert, including the first performance of Reynolds’ new piece, Here and There . On Friday, March 1, guest faculty Ivan Manzanilla and Aiyun Huang will present new solo works in a concert that will conclude a red fish blue fish performance of Iannis Xenakis ’s Persephassa for six antiphonal percussionists. 
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Xenakis' work Persephassa. The seating configuration of the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall was specifically designed to accommodate and feature this master work. The Friday, March 1st concert will be the first time Persephassa will be performed in the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall.
