Driftwood

Driftwood Percussion (Redshift Music’s Percussion ensemble-in-residence)

Dedicated to the pursuit and craft of percussion performance, this dynamic and intrepid ensemble is comprised of Vancouver’s top classical percussionists. As percussion ensemble-in-residence with Redshift Music, they share Redshift’s signature interests in spatial performance experiences, staging concerts in atypical spaces, and expanding the contemporary performance repertoire. They are also committed to forging their unique identity and artistic voice as a West Coast percussion ensemble. Although their appearance at ISCM 2017 marks the group’s premiere performance, collectively these performers share years of history collaborating and performing together in Vancouver’s finest ensembles.
