The compositions of the percussionist Susie Ibarra defy all categories and genres. For Summergarden, she will premiere a three-movement suite for quartet that reflects her passion for the folklore and indigenous music of the Philippines. The program also includes works from her trio music inspired by fantasy and folklore.
