Performing in a sea of percussion instruments and in front of projected film of past great drummers and artists, Vern never misses a beat. This program also includes the world premiere of Marcus Goddard’s Live Wire commissioned for the VS with the help of the Hugh Davidson Foundation, as well as works by Jocelyn Morlock and Farangis Nurulla-Khoja.
