To round out the season, Colin Jacobsen, violin; Nicholas Cords, viola; and Edward Arron, cello, perform a program of Biber’s Passacaglia in G Minor for Solo Violin; and a string trio arrangement by Dmitry Sitkovetsky of Bach’s Goldberg Variations.

So Percussion & Man Forever
Complementing the exhibition PUNK: Chaos to Couture, Met Museum Presents explores the DIY and experimental components of punk with an evening of drumming by the celebrated ensemble So Percussion and Man Forever, composer/percussionist John Colpitts’s experimental drum project. Called an “experimental powerhouse” by The Village Voice, So Percussion—America’s premier modern percussion ensemble—brings their adventurous spirit to the Met Museum to explore the DIY and experimental components of punk. John Colpitts (aka Kid Millions) is a Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, composer, and writer who is perhaps best known as the drummer for Oneida. Man Forever is his vehicle for exploring the outer limits of drum experimentation and performance. Since 2010, Man Forever has released two full-length albums and two live recordings. www.sopercussion.com

This event is in conjunction with PUNK: Chaos to Couture, on view May 7–August 14, 2013.
