CalArts, The Wild Beast and Mark Taper Courtyard
Free. All Ages.
All-star musicmakers gather to celebrate the legacy of the great John Bergamo (1940–2013)—the peerless hand-drummer, composer, global music explorer and educator who was one of the most influential creative figures in CalArts history. Performing a selection of Bergamo’s most important works are members of the late maestro’s original Repercussion Unit; Hands On’Semble with Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri and Houman Pourmehdi; the latest iteration of the CalArts Percussion Ensemble, and a host of alumni from around the country.
