Happy Thanksgiving from the DrumChattr team! Today’s video features an interesting collaboration between Grammy nominated choir “Conspirare” and the University of Texas Percussion Group. Originally part of a PBS pledge special this concert was recorded and distributed world wide via the Harmoni Mundi label in May of 2009. Rumor has it that it may be re-aired in early December on many national PBS stations. Check your local listings. Click here for more collaborative videos from the DVD.

Triptych originally was scored for small string orchestra and in this version was adapted for percussion. What new or interesting combinations/collaborations have you been involved in? Leave your thoughts below in the comments.
