The Tufts University Department of Music presents a performance by Robert Schulz, in the Distler Performance Hall at the Perry and Marty Granoff Music Center on Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 3 p.m. as part of the Sunday at Tufts – Community Concert Series.

Performance faculty percussionist Robert Schulz is your guide into an exotic world of contemporary music, presenting percussion-based compositions for solo, duo and trio, as well as live electronics. Joined by violist Noriko Futagami and bass clarinetist William Kirkley, five stunning and dramatic works will be performed. Modern masterpieces by Javier Alvarez (Mexico) and Luciano Berio (Italy) join three works written expressly for Schulz, by Lisa Bielawa (USA), Stefan Hackenberg (Germany) and special guest Seung-Ah Oh (South Korea), who will speak about her newest composition, “Black Crow."
