Pedro Segundo in the Great Hall
Sun, January 23rd at 6:00 PM - 6:30 PM
In conjunction with the closing of Dawn DeDeaux: The Space Between Worlds, Pedro Segundo presents a solo percussion performance in NOMA’s Great Hall. A musical composition by Segundo is featured in DeDeaux’s work Where’s Mary, and this special event is inspired by that score and the exhibition’s themes of beginnings and ends.
Doors open at 5:30 pm, and the performance begins at 6:00 pm. Visitors are invited to explore the galleries after-hours until 7:30 pm.
$15 General Admission | $5 for Members
About the Exhibition
Dawn DeDeaux: The Space Between Worlds is the first comprehensive museum exhibition for the pioneering multimedia artist Dawn DeDeaux. Since the 1970s, DeDeaux’s practice has spanned video, performance, photography, and installation to create art that exists at the edge of the Anthropocene. Anticipating a future imperiled by the runaway population growth, breakneck industrial development, and the looming threat of climate change, DeDeaux has long worked between worlds of the present and the future.
About Pedro Segundo
Pedro Segundo is the embodiment of dynamism. Equally at home behind 18th-century-style kettle drums and a five-piece drum kit, Pedro makes every object he touches a channel for his incredible musical energy.
Pedro grew up in Portugal and was reared on an eclectic blend of gospel, classical, swing and world music. All of these genres have spurred him on to his singularly unique approach to percussion.
In 2010 he became the house drummer of Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, England whilst finishing his Timpani and Classical percussion degree at Guildhall School of a music and Drama.
He has performed around the world with such artists as Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields as guest timpanist with Sir Neville Marriner, Murray Perahia, and Joshua Bell, and more recently with Judith Owen, Dennis Rollins, Cyrille Aimée, as well as Chineke! Orchestra at the BBC proms’21.
Locally, you can catch Pedro’s work at NOMA as part of Dawn DeDeaux’s retrospective, weekly gigs at Pontchartrain Hotel or Royal Frenchman Hotel, or his upcoming debut with the Louisiana Philharmonic on March 24, 2022.
