A fierce advocate for the music of today, pianist Conor Hanick has premiered over 200 works, including pieces by icons like Steve Reich and Kaija Saariaho and respected composers of his own generation like Caroline Shaw and Marcos Balter.

In this dynamic collaborative performance with Sandbox Percussion, Mr. Hanick leans into the piano as a percussion instrument, performing works by Andy Akiho, Olivier Messiaen, György Ligeti, and Christopher Cerrone. Also on the program, the world premiere of a new work by Tyshawn Sorey that was commissioned by The Gilmore with support from Bell’s Brewery for Mr. Hanick and Sandbox Percussion. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the birth of a new work by one of today’s most admired composers.
