Boasting an international reputation and ever at the forefront of experimentation, Sixtrum ensemble collaborates with the OSM to present an all-marimba concert. The group’s six musicians will perform repertoire solely devoted to the warm-toned instrument, culminating in Steve Reich’s 6 Marimbas, a transcendentally imbued piece that premiered 35 years ago, characteristic of this American composer’s minimalist creative approach.
