A musical chameleon, the piano is classified as both a percussion and string instrument. Join us on October 1 at the Gladstone Hotel as we explore a diversity of techniques and approaches for 88 keys in Key Encounters, with guests master percussionist Russell Hartenberger and classical pianist Darren Creech.

Hartenberger will discuss his long association with Pulitzer prize-winner Steve Reich and the origin of Reich’s seminal Six Pianos. Creech discusses how he uses “queer theatre, captivating costumes, and glittery hair” to turn his solo instrument into a full stage show.

The first Encounters of Soundstreams' 36th Season! There will be live music, stimulating discussion, the wonderful food and beverages on hand at the Gladstone, and it’s free!

Encounters is a free performance and discussion series, held at The Gladstone Hotel. Discover and engage with Soundstreams’ music and artists in a relaxed atmosphere.
