White Water...On the Housatonic is a NEW work for percussion ensemble (sextet) by Tom Gauger. The Housatonic River in Connecticut is an exciting roller coaster ride that displays both the power and beauty of the river. According to Gauger, anyone who recoginzes the ebb and flow of a river and the calm eddies will recognize these elements in White Water on the Housatonic. You will hear the power of the currents and the pounding waves and you will appreciate what White Water is all about.

White Water on the Housatonic was commissioned by Frank Epstein and the New England Conservatory Percussion Ensemble.
