piano/percussion project

  • Satellite artist Danny Holt's program places the pianist amid an array of percussion instruments, calling for acrobatic feats of multi-instrumentalism. Over 20 composers have contributed new works to this project. Holt's recital includes works by Oscar Bettison, Jascha Narveson, David Johnson, Ulrich Krieger, Christine Southworth, Karl Blench, and Ingrid Lee.

Piano Spheres’ programs are made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs and by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. Programs are also made possible, in part, by grants from the Colburn Foundation; Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation; New Music USA; The Aaron Copland Fund for Music and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The NEA’s Art Works grant supports the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence: public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and enhancing the livability of communities through the arts. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is an independent federal agency that funds and promotes artistic excellence, creativity, and innovation for the benefit of individuals and communities.
