About The Event
Concert audiences across the United States have been brought to their feet by a pairing of musical personalities as improbable and winning as Organized Rhythm’s combination of the pipe organ and percussion. British organist Clive Driskill-Smith,whose solo performances in England and America earned him recognition as one of his generation’s star organists, is wry and reserved—until he lets loose an astonishing battery of effects at the keyboard. He’s complemented by the athletic movement of Joseph Gramley, a physically towering Oregon native whose own crowd-pleasing solo concerts and work with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble have made him one of the leading percussionists performing today. This powerful and harmonious duo presents what has been described as “…an exciting two-hour musical adventure, [offering] startling clear insight into what makes a live performance good, and why good live performances are important for us....passion, technical mastery, and precision. " (The Granite State News, Wolfeboro NH)
The duo will present an educational program for students from Robinson Community Learning Center on Monday, April 8, 2019.
Organized Rhythm is represented in North America exclusively by Phillip Truckenbrod Concert Artists, LLC.
