Edward T. Cone Performers-in-Residence

In 2014, Sō Percussion succeeded the Brentano String Quartet as the Department of Music's Edward T. Cone Performers-in-Residence. 

Sō Percussion

The members of the dynamic percussion quartet Sō Percussion are the Department of Music's Edward T. Cone Performers-in-Residence, teaching graduate and undergraduate students as both classroom lecturers and performance coaches. They workshop and premiere new works by student and faculty composers, teach chamber music skills, present regular masterclasses, and perform two major concerts in the Princeton community each year.  In addition, the annual Sō Percussion Summer Institute brings some of the most promising young percussionists and composers from around the world to Princeton each July to premiere new works, many by Princeton graduate students.

Along with Sō Percussion’s appointment, the generosity of the Edward T. Cone Performers-in-Residence program also supports an increased educational component for the Richardson Chamber Players, an increased commitment to early music, and term residencies for visiting solo artists.
