Full-time solo percussionist Evelyn Glennie takes to the stage at the City Hall Concert Hall tomorrow at 8 pm. Accompanied by pianist Philip Smith, she will perform a variety of works that include three Hong Kong premieres. The concert will feature an exciting repertoire of rhythmic music performed on a collection of unique musical instruments. Born in Scotland, Glennie studied timpani and percussion from the age of 12. Later, at London's Royal Academy of Music, she won many awards including the Academy's most prestigious - the Queen's Commendation Prize for all round excellence. She works regularly in Britain with all major symphony orchestras, often in performances that champion new works. She has also made a remarkable musical impact in North America, Australia and Japan. Her recent less conventional performances have included recitals and workshops with music scholars in India. Other diversifications include working with Brazilian percussionist and vocalist Nana Vasconcelos and Icelandic pop singer Bjork. Glennie will also give a free masterclass tonight at 8 pm at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre (HKCC) Concert Hall Backstage, 7th Floor, CR2.
