NEXUS HONORED AT TORONTO ARTS AWARDS
on 31/10/11In recognition of the 40th anniversary season of NEXUS (featuring SABIAN Artists Bill Cahn and Bob Becker), the Toronto-based percussion quartet was honored at the Toronto Arts Foundation’s “Celebratory Lunch and Awards” on October 20, 2011. NEXUS was the 1989 recipient of the Toronto Arts Award in music.
The 40th season of NEXUS was a continuation of the ensemble’s dedication to the performance of music featuring percussion in solo recitals and in appearances with symphony orchestras.
"In each piece, Nexus didn't simply play and play well. It made music. At the end, the usually sedate Williams [Auditorium] audience sent up a noisy thank-you to the visiting percussionists -- no, make that musicians." (Berkshire Eagle)
