Brooklyn Bound: W² Percussion

  • Sō Percussion studio 20 Grand Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11205 United States (map)

Now in its fifth year, Brooklyn Bound is a popular series of concerts at Sō’s working studio in the Navy Yard section of Brooklyn. Casual and intimate, the concerts feature us and emerging ensembles from our local scene. The groups are encouraged to try out new material, premiere new commissions, completely experiment, or just get another performance under their belt.
