Nick Terry (percussion)
has achieved critical acclaim as both a soloist and ensemble player of wildly diverse styles of music. Pursuing his interest in contemporary music, Nick's performances often feature many of the most challenging scores yet composed for percussion. |
Based in Los Angeles , Nick performs contemporary music with Inauthentica, the California E.A.R. Unit, PARTCH (featuring the music of Harry Partch), Eighteen2 (the music of Steve Reich), and Sharp Three (eclectic world-fusion improvisation). Nick is a founding member of the Lucerne Festival Percussion Group, an international ensemble of twelve virtuosos, which operates under the auspices of Pierre Boulez, members of the Ensemble Intercontemporian, and Switzerland's Lucerne Festival. Recent distinguished performances have occurred at the Lucerne Festival, Klangspuren Music Festival, Ojai Music Festival, Microfest, Monday Evening Concerts, Music & Conversations, Green Umbrella Concert Series, and the Stanford New Music Festival.
Currently, Nick serves on the faculty of the Conservatory of Music at Chapman University's College of the Performing Arts. He is a graduate of the California Institute of the Arts, and Eastern Illinois University ."
