A group, consisting of young people from Junior Guildhall, Creative Learning, and Centre for Young Musicians, will perform a new composition created during the Reverberations weekend, inspired by the music of Steve Reich. Reich himself will spend some time with the young people during the creative process to see the piece develop. 

Percussion students from the Guildhall School will perform alongside So Percussion in Jason Treuting’s How to blank, GO, June and Amid the Noise.


So Percussion will perform one of Steve Reich's pieces, Drumming Part 1.
