In a program entitled “Balderdash,” the percussion quartet Umbilicus will perform works by Will Redman, Tom Goldstein, Jennifer Walshe and others, including:
Burners: End to End by Will Redman
Deck by Will Redman
Evergreen by Tom Goldstein
A new work (premiere) by Tom Goldstein
THIS IS WHY PEOPLE O.D. ON PILLS/AND JUMP FROM THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE by Jennifer Walshe
Umbilicus was founded in 2012 as a reaction to the generic contemporary percussion quartet, intending to promote and perform a more experimental repertoire, much if it composed by its members. It consists of three UMBC alumni — Paul Neidhardt, Michelle Purdy, Will Redman — and UMBC faculty member Tom Goldstein. The name Umbilicus contains the letters U M B C.
$15 general admission, $10 seniors, $5 students.
UMBC is located about 10 minutes south of the Inner Harbor along I-95. For this event, free visitor parking is available in Lot 8, directly adjacent to the Performing Arts and Humanities Building, where the Music Box is located.
