Rice University hosted the Houston premiere of “Inuksuit,” a monumental work for percussion by noted American composer John Luther Adams, Sept. 21. The outdoor performance used James Turrell’s “Twilight Epiphany” Skyspace as its anchor. It featured percussionists from Rice’s Shepherd School of Music, the University of Texas at San Antonio, Texas A&M, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Sam Houston State University, the Colburn School and the local Houston area. Brandon Bell, a predoctoral candidate at the Shepherd School of Music, organized the performance with support from the Shepherd School and Rice Public Art.
