Parallel Resonance will be a spirited night of music for marimba, vibraphone, guitar and percussion influenced by the energetic rhythms and harmonies of flamenco, tango and jazz. The program will feature joyful instrumental music from a diverse range of composers including Rodrigo y Gabriela, Julia Wolfe, Emmanuel Séjourné as well as lesser known gems from Joe Duddell, Terry Riley, Robert Davidson, Olga Amelkina-Vera and more.

The UWA Conservatorium of Music is one of Australia’s leading music performance schools. Piñata Percussion is the Conservatorium’s virtuosic ensemble of percussion students, led by award-winning musician Dr Louise Devenish. The UWA Guitar Studio is directed by American artist Dr Jonathan Fitzgerald, performing frequently throughout WA and around Australia.
