Douglas J. Cuomo: THE JUMP UP! (World Premiere)

THE JUMP UP! is a celebration of the joy of communal music making, composed by Douglas J. Cuomo (Doubt, Arjuna’s Dilemma) for Sandbox Percussion and volunteer percussionists from the local community. This free outdoor performance will have the musicians roaming through Caramoor’s beautiful Sunken Garden, with the audience encouraged to freely move about the players, each listener navigating their own interaction with the music.

Says Cuomo, “Making music together, and particularly drumming, creates such deep and powerful connections for everyone involved. The whole point of this piece is to have as many people as possible experience that connection, by bringing together Sandbox, the volunteer players, and the audience, so that some joyful magic can happen.”

3:00pm / Pre-concert conversation with Douglas J. Cuomo.

This event is FREE.
