Event Description

The Pacific Rims Percussion Quartet

Paul Hansen
Rob Tucker
Gunnar Folsom
Matt Kocmieroski

Enter the percussive and ethereal sounds of Iceland with the Seattle-based Pacific Rims Percussion Quartet as they evoke the Icelandic northern lights in Aura by Anna Þorvaldsdóttir, the dramatic moss-covered, volcanic, and ice-shaped landscapes in Sindur by Áksell Másson, and more from this extraordinary and rich repertoire. The versatility of textures that emit from this ensemble are matched only by the vastness of the Icelandic experience.

About the series:

Nordic chamber music performed by acclaimed musicians from across the globe.

Welcome to the 25th season of the Mostly Nordic Chamber Music Series! This season package offers the best value for music lovers who wish to join us for a delightful journey through the five Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Following the success of last year's introduction of our new "Nordic Neighbors" component, we are pleased to offer a sixth concert which this year features the music of Russia.

You are sure to be transported and inspired thanks to the incredible talent and heart of this season's musicians. Osberg Great Hall stands lined with seats, our permanent and temporary exhibitions are full of treasures, and our cafe Freya is ready to tempt you with treats. Join us for an enchanting musical season, won't you?
