Every hour on the hour, Mantra Percussion will perform loved. live on Cherry Esplanade.
loved. is a site-specific sound composition for seven percussionists playing tuned metals and was created for the Garden by NYC-based composer Michael Gordon to honor those we have lost in the pandemic. Each performance runs approximately 5 minutes.
Mantra Percussion is an ensemble committed to bringing to life new percussive works by living composers. The group has been hailed by The New York Times as “finely polished... a fresh source of energy” and lauded by both The New Yorker and TimeOut New York for presenting some of the city’s most noteworthy classical performances.
