In a program entitled “Balderdash,” the percussion quartet Umbilicus will perform works by Will Redman, Tom Goldstein, Jennifer Walshe and others, including:
- Burners: End to End by Will Redman
- Deck by Will Redman
- Evergreen by Tom Goldstein
- A new work (premiere) by Tom Goldstein
- THIS IS WHY PEOPLE O.D. ON PILLS/AND JUMP FROM THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE by Jennifer Walshe
Umbilicus was founded in 2012 as a reaction to the generic contemporary percussion quartet, intending to promote and perform a more experimental repertoire, much if it composed by its
members. It consists of three UMBC alumni — Paul Neidhardt, Michelle Purdy, Will Redman — and UMBC faculty member Tom Goldstein. The name Umbilicus contains the letters U M B C.
$15 general admission, $10 seniors, $5 students, free for UMBC music majors and music faculty/staff, available online or at the box office one hour prior to the performance.
