WILLIAMS PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE - WARP WOOF & WEAVE
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
The Williams Percussion Ensemble (WiPE) presents its fall concert, Warp Woof & Weave, inviting the audience to experience an up close and intimate performance with seating on stage, surrounding the musicians. Listeners will be immersed in a world of intricate patterns and textures sounding from bowed vibraphones, chiming flower pots, marimbas, drums of all sorts, and warped electronic grooves. In works by young composers at the cutting edge of contemporary music and influential masters of the late twentieth-century, Warp Woof & Weave zooms in on the undulating rhythms and fragmentary patterns that coalesce into the larger musical whole.  https://events.williams.edu/event/williams-percussion-ensemble/ Free Chapin Hall Bernhard Music Center, 54 Chapin Drive, Williams College, Williamstown, MA @ 8 p.m.
