Seven Pillars

The spectacular conclusion of Apex's twelfth season comes with a look into the music of the future.

The multi-award-winning group Sandbox Percussion will present Seven Pillars by Andy Akiho, which has received the 2022 GRAMMY nominations for both “Best Classical Composition” and “Best Chamber Music Performance.” A boldly genre-defying audio and video collaboration for percussion quartet, the work consists of seven ensemble movements and one solo movement for each member of Sandbox, developed through multiple extended residencies at Avaloch Farm Music Institute. Akiho and Sandbox’s ongoing collaboration for “Seven Pillars” has spanned on and off for eight years. It has been a labor of love between friends and represents in many ways all the loftiest goals of great chamber music of the past, present and future.

Please note: This performance features strobe lights, and could potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
