Iron Giant Percussion
Contemporary from Birmingham AL

abbreviated in the most confusing manner possible, FeGP, is an emergent contemporary ensemble based in Birmingham, consisting of Sam Herman, Brett Huffman, Seth Noble, and Justin Wallace. Established in 2011 to perform a collaborative piece with Sanspointe Dance Company, they subsequently presented three ambitious concerts in Alys Stephens Center's Sirote Theater – each featuring some of the most influential and challenging percussion music from the 20th and 21st centuries. The group won the 2013 Clefworks Festival competition in Montgomery, where they performed with internationally acclaimed So Percussion group for the premiere of Jason Treuting and Josh Quillen’s Montgomery Double Music. FeGP’s recent concert for the Birmingham Art Music Alliance’s 2012-2013 season featured an evening of world-premiere works by local and international composers. In addition to formal concerts, Iron Giant Percussion regularly participate in community and outreach programs through organizations such as BAMA, Children's Dance Foundation and Metropolitan Youth Orchestra's Scrollworks. With each performance, Iron Giant aims to bring an answer to the most common question regarding percussion music: “Is that actually a thing?” That answer is a resounding, unequivocal “Yes it is!”
