Bowker Auditorium

 

New Amsterdam Records presents artists whose vision ignores traditional definitions and rules. For this special collaboration with the Fine Arts Center, New Amsterdam will present a double bill of all-saxophone ensemble Battle Trance & percussionists Tigue. Battle Trance aims to fulfill the tenor saxophone's expansive potential as an ensemble instrument while Tigue is a group of three percussionists with a fluid musical identity, making their own kinetic and hypnotic blend of instrumental minimalism while opening up the possibilities of their instrumentation through commissioning and collaboration.
