At the pinnacle of his legendary career, performer and pedagogue Robert van Sice has assembled a stunning collection of young artists who are reinventing the concert experience. The Percussion Collective transcends the medium of percussion through uncommon performance experiences that surprise and engage audiences at a profound emotional level. The hallmarks of van Sice’s musical approach—precise execution, sonic refinement, and dynamic onstage communication—are all on display in the most vivid manner to date. Drawing from an incomparably rich bouquet of talent, The Percussion Collective flexes in size offering exquisitely curated programs for an array of venues and settings. The fabulously successful ten concert inaugural tour of the United States in the Spring of 2018 featured the first performances of the newly commissioned Seaborne, an immersive multimedia work by Emmy Award-winning composer Garth Neustadter and videographer Kjell van Sice that celebrates the beauty of our world’s oceans.
The Percussion Collective transcends the medium of percussion through uncommon performance experiences that surprise and engage audiences at a profound emotional level. Their Munich debut is part of a European tour that also includes recitals and masterclasses in London, Paris, Vienna and Amsterdam.
A thrilling, reverent, and highly personal look into the nature of the ocean, ‘Seaborne’, by composer Garth Neustadter and filmmaker Kjell van Sice, is undoubtedly one of the most compelling additions to the percussion repertoire in decades. Since its premiere in 2018, this 30 minute tour de force has amazed and inspired audiences worldwide to not just love the sea, but protect it as well.
“The extraordinary Percussion Collective is a unique collection of some of the world’s finest percussion artists. They brought the audience a level of artistry, beauty and insight more commonly found in great string quartets. The group’s performance of the exquisite Seaborne, has taken chamber percussion to a completely new level.”
