Fan Yu's Adams Gear

Since the group’s inception in 2018, one of their hallmarks has been close collaborations with some of today’s most respected composers to create a new kind of repertoire for percussion. Grammy Award-winning composer, Christopher Theofanidis crafted his sublime concerto, Drum Circles as their first orchestral offering. In this piece, four members of The Percussion Collective along with the orchestra’s own percussion section surround the orchestra in a circle, creating an extraordinary spatial and theatrical effect.  The world premier with maestro Carlos Kalmar and the Oregon Symphony was a resounding success and The Percussion Collective has subsequently  performed the concerto with The Aspen Festival Orchestra and Michael Stern, the Hartford Symphony Orchestra with Carolyn Kuan, the Curtis Symphony Orchestra in Verizon Hall with Yu Won Kim and the Colorado Symphony with Brett Mitchell. Concerto engagements in the 2021-2022 season will include Seaborne with Orchestra with the Boise Philharmonic under the direction of Eric Garcia and two performances of Theofanidis Drum Circles with Michael Francis and the Baltimore Symphony.
