In SFCMP’s Master Class series you will observe some of the most talented Bay Area pre-professional music students as they learn from our renowned ensemble members in front of a live audience. Students will perform contemporary classical pieces that were selected by them. The students perform the music while being mentored in the master techniques, skills, and style of contemporary music. This new music and percussion master class is led by SFCMP percussionist, Wiilliam Winant.

Grammy-nominated percussionist William Winant is internationally regarded as a leading performer of avant-garde music. In 2014, he received a Grammy nomination for his recording of John Cage’s historic solo work, 27′ 10.554″ for a percussionist, on Micro Fest Records. Over the course of his career, William has collaborated with legends of 20th and 21st century music, from Iannis Xenakis to Steve Reich and Yo-Yo Ma, and from Merce Cunningham to Kronos Quartet and Sonic Youth. Composers who have written for Willie include john Cage, Lou Harrison, John Zorn, Peter Garland, Larry Polansky, Gordon Mumma, Alvin Lucier, Terry Riley, Fred Frith, Somei Satoh, and Wadada Leo Smith. He is the percussionist with the avant-rock band Mr. Bungle, and performs locally with his own ensemble, the William Winant Percussion Group. A member of the instrumental faculty at the University of California at Berkeley and Mills College, and a Visiting Lecturer at University of California, Santa Cruz. Winant has made over two hundred recordings covering a wide variety of music, including the revered recording of Lou Harrison’s La Koro Sutro and the 2013 release of Five American Percussion Pieces. In 2016, Winant was awarded a prestigious grant from the Foundation of Contemporary Arts in recognition for his groundbreaking work as a contemporary percussionist. William joined SFCMP in 1988.  More...
