arx duo: Metal & Wood: Pitches of Percussion

Long resonance and short tones… Come hear brand new exciting music for marimba and vibraphone by living composers, including local composer Angelique Poteat.

Mari Yoshinaga and Garrett Arney are the artistic force behind arx duo. Their mission is to forge new connections and artistic pathways, or “arcs,” through percussion chamber music. They are dedicated to expanding percussion chamber music by commissioning new creative works, educating and inspiring young artists, and inviting audiences across the globe to engage with new and vibrant musical experiences. Thriving on collaborative artistic experiences, arx has worked with countless composers, chamber ensembles, community ensembles, and symphony orchestras to bring new percussion music to life. They have premiered, performed, or taught new pieces for percussion instruments across the United States, in Japan, the UK, Canada and Ghana. Committed to inspiring the next generation of creative artists, their non-profit Arx Music Association seeks to provide musical opportunities for early career, student, and avocational musicians. They have served as guest teachers or artists in residence at universities and conservatories across the US, and currently serve on the faculty of the Curtis Young Artists Summer Program.
