Stewart Copland Goes Orchestral

This weekend, Stewart Copland will be performing his latest work “Gamelan D’Drumm” with the San Antonio Symphony and D’Drum.He wrote the piece over two years, and his process has been documented in the film “Dare to Drum.”

“San Antonio Symphony audiences who come out this weekend, (Stewart) said, can expect to find that “the whole front of the stage will be taken up with (D’Drum’s) incredible collection of drums and bells and God-knows what else, mostly with unpronounceable names. And behind them will be the mighty San Antonio orchestra providing a rich, orchestral sonority to these very exotic sounds.”
