A concert by the Oberlin Percussion Group directed by Michael Rosen on November 26, 2019, featured the world premiere of RETRO VARIATIONS by Christopher Shultis, as well as works by William Russell, Bob Becker, Reiko Füting, and more. The concert was live-streamed on the Oberlin website.  And on November 19, music by Shultis was performed at the ASU Kerr Cultural Center in Scottsdale, in a program called "Lost In Sound."  Soprano Stacey Mastrian and percussionist Simone Mancuso presented music for voice and percussion instruments, featuring the world premiere of "After Agnes Martin" (from the opera Lost in the Woods), based on texts by Henry David Thoreau and written for Stacey and Simone by American composer Chris Shultis.
