About The Event
Join Chamber Brews and Brothers Drake Meadery for our mid-summer concert, Percussive. We will explore the rhythmic and timbral capacity of string instruments, featuring two world-premier performances commissioned from local Columbus-area composers Joe Krygier and Eli Chambers. In typical Chamber Brews fashion, we will share insights into our rehearsal and performance process, as well as the commissioning and compositional process. Meet living, breathing, local composers! :O
