WELL BEHAVED WOMEN SELDOM MAKE HISTORY
My consortium entitled Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History highlights percussionists Keiko Abe (marimba), Evelyn Glennie (multi percussion), Terri Lyne Carrington (drumset), and Marjorie Hyams (vibraphone) whose careers have made substantial impacts on the percussion community.
My goal is not only for these solo pieces to become staples within the percussion canon but also to highlight the power and strength of the female percussionist. This project will be a collaboration to give other percussionists the opportunity to help support and spread its vision. Each performance is an active way to outwardly express support for the project and equal representation within the percussion community.
