About

Aram Demirjian leads a propulsive program all about the power and movement of rhythm in classical and contemporary pieces. This program features James DeMars’ SABAR: Concerto for African Drums, performed by Indigenous Vibes, a professional drumming ensemble comprised of alumni of Austin East High School’s West African Drum program, directed by Obayana Ajanaku. This concert also features the beloved music of West Side Story, Bernstein’s “Symphonic Dances.” The program begins with “Drums: A Symphonic Poem” by the “Dean of Jazz Pianists,” James Price Johnson, and closes with Ravel’s timeless Bolero, a ballet composition that carries the drumbeat of this program to the last moment of the evening.
