Panic Ensemble is a Los Angeles-based group dedicated to the performance of the music of our time. Featuring violinist Pasha Tseitlin, pianist Nic Gerpe, clarinettist Michele Zuvkosky, and cellist Rebecca Merblum, the ensemble’s performances of contemporary music have been described as “exciting,” “virtuosic,” and “irresistible.” Engaging audiences with unfamiliar music through a combination of dialogue and uncompromising musicality, Panic has brought a variety of repertoire to audiences since 2009. Unique in their facility with works from different styles and periods—classical, contemporary, jazz, modernist, and world music-inspired—Panic’s performances feature surprising juxtapositions of works. On the cutting edge of new music, their repertoire includes pieces by John Adams, John Corigliano, Nico Muhly, and Jennifer Higdon, and they have collaborated with composers such as Gernot Wolfgang, Donald Crockett, Erica Muhl, and Juhi Bansal, commissioning, premiering, and recording new works. Recent performance highlights include world premieres of works for violin and piano by the composers’ collective Improvisatory Minds, a group dedicated to chamber music written by jazz musicians and consisting of Gernot Wolfgang, Michael Patterson, Ed Neumeister, and Bevan Manson.

Pianist Richard Grayson performs improvisations on themes submitted by audience members and friends.

 

Richard Grayson received his Ph.D. in composition from UCLA, and taught on the music faculty of Occidental College from 1969 until he retired in 2001. His yearly improvisation concerts were a highlight of Occidental’s concert season. His awards as a composer include a Fulbright Fellowship to Belgium and a composition grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Since the fall of 2001, he has taught music theory courses at the Crossroads School in Santa Monica.

 

For over three decades Grayson gave concerts and seminars for the Yamaha Music Education Foundation and visited Japan many times to perform and teach. For the past 10 summers he taught improvisation courses at the Showa Academy of Music in Kawasaki, Japan, and was also invited to give seminars and performances at conservatories in Taiwan, China, and Vietnam. Grayson has been featured several times at the National Piano Pedagogy and Music Teachers National conventions in the United States.

 

Three of his visual-electronic keyboard works were performed at a historic University of Massachusetts, Lowell concert featuring the re-creation of Antheil’s complete Ballet Mécanique. Two of these, “Mr. 528” and “Shoot the Piano Player” were issued on CD by the Electronic Music Foundation in New York. As a member of the Monday Evening Concerts board for many years, he was a regular performer on that series at LACMA. Grayson was also a church organist for 35 years, most recently at St. Martin of Tours in West Los Angeles, from which he retired in 2009.
