Caroline Shaw & Sō Percussion Let the Soil Play its Simple Part (UK premiere)

For twenty years and counting, Sō Percussion has redefined chamber music for the 21st century through an “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam” (The New Yorker). They are celebrated by audiences and presenters for a dazzling range of work: for live performances in which “telepathic powers of communication” (The New York Times) bring to life the vibrant percussion repertoire; for an extravagant array of collaborations in classical music, pop, indie rock, contemporary dance, and theatre; and for their work in education and community, creating opportunities and platforms for music and artists that explore the immense possibility of art in our time.

They will be performing with Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw, a musician who moves among roles, genres, and mediums, trying to imagine a world of sound that has never been heard before but has always existed. Sō Percussion & Caroline Shaw’s show at Norfolk & Norwich Festival will be the UK premiere of their collaborative album, Let the Soil Play its Simple Part.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
