So very pleased to get a second chance to perform Massacre of Spring (my percussion trio and piano arrangement and reconstruction of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring) at NMASS festival this year. Thank you to Henna Chou and Melissa Seely. The band is incredible featuring Thomas Burritt – marimba, Chuck Fischer – drum kit, Cullen Faulk – vibes, glock, bass drum and Peter Stopschinski – piano. I have very few of my Vacation With Stravinsky graphic novels left which will be for sale at the show. I was reminded when I began revisiting this piece that I only arranged the first part of the Rite. Someday I need to do that second part. It starts with the Tatooine music from starwars.
