Akros Percussion Collective

Based in Northeast Ohio, Akros Percussive Collective is an ensemble that pushes the edges of music and sonic art. Founded in 2006, the collective has collaborated with such luminaries as Julio Estrada, John Luther Adams, Matthias Kaul, and Stuart Saunders Smith, presenting works by these composers in such unexpected sites as a former ice and coal complex, a meadow in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and numerous independent gallery spaces. In addition to residencies at the Akron Art Museum and concertizing throughout Northeast Ohio, the group has given feature performances at the Blurred Edges Festival, Transplanted Roots: Percussion Research Symposium, Le Poisson Rouge, INTAR Theatre, University of Akron, University of Cincinnati, Hartt School of Music, Kent State University’s New Music Series, and several PASICs.
