Hailing from Columbus, Georgia, Up/Down is a percussion quartet dedicated to performing new music at the highest standard. The group regularly performs both as a quartet and in smaller duo and trio settings. Up/Down’s repertoire ranges from the works of veteran composers like Steve Reich and Jacob ter Veldhuis to newer contributions by Jason Treuting and Wally Gunn. Notable recent projects have included performances at the 2014 Columbus Minimalism Symposium, the 2015 Chosen Vale Percussion Seminar, an appearance in Clayton State University’s Educational Series, and the 2015 PASIC Percussion Chamber Competition. In July of 2017, the group received first prize in the Great Composer's Competition "Rising Talents of the World." For their 2018 season, Up/Down performed Jan Jarvlepp's Garbage Concerto with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra and is currently in the process of completing their first tour.
