String The­ory cham­ber con­cert se­ries con­tin­ues its 10th sea­son with a per­for­mance by Sand­box Per­cus­sion on Tues­day, Oct. 23, at Hunter Mu­seum of Amer­i­can Art, 10 Bluff View.

The award-win­ning per­cus­sion quar­tet will per­form at 6:30 p.m. Fred Child, host of “Per­for­mance To­day” ra­dio show, will lead a dis­cus­sion at 5:30 p.m.

Sand­box Per­cus­sion is com­prised of Jonathan Allen, Vic­tor Cac­cese, Ian Rosen­baum and Terry Sweeney.

Lauded by The Wash­ing­ton Post as “re­vi­tal­iz­ing the world of con­tem­po­rary mu­sic with jaw­drop­ping vir­tu­os­ity,” Sand­box Per­cus­sion has es­tab­lished it­self as a lead­ing con­tem­po­rary per­cus­sion ensem­ble. Sand­box Per­cus­sion pre­sented 35 per­for­mances last sea­son through­out the United States. Dur­ing a tour through Cal­i­for­nia, they gave the world premiere of Thomas Kotch­eff’s per­cus­sion quar­tet “not only that one but that one & that too.” Dur­ing the Amer­i­can Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in Troy, New York, Sand­box gave the world premiere of a con­certo by Viet Cuong en­ti­tled “Re(new)al” along with the Al­bany Sym­phony. In ad­di­tion to keep­ing a busy con­cert sched­ule, Sand­box has also par­tic­i­pated in var­i­ous mas­ter­classes and coach­ings at schools such as the Pe­abody Con­ser­va­tory, Cur­tis In­sti­tute, the Univer­sity of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, Kansas Univer­sity, Cor­nell Univer­sity and Fur­man Univer­sity.

This sea­son, Sand­box will col­lab­o­rate with The In­dus­try, an opera com­pany in Los An­ge­les, for the world premiere of “Galileo,” a 90-minute the­ater piece by Andy Ak­iho. Other high­lights will in­clude the first per­cus­sion quar­tet con­cert at the Cos­mos Club in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., and a sec­ond West Coast tour with 11 per­for­mances from Seat­tle to Los An­ge­les.
