American percussionist Logan Fox is establishing himself as a rising star in the solo percussion world. As the winner of the prestigious 2018 Aeolian Classics Emerging Artist Award, Mr. Fox will be featured in recital throughout the Chicago area during the Spring 2018 season, and he will record a debut solo CD for Aeolian Classics to be released in Fall 2018.
Mr. Fox feels equally at home in a broad array of musical genres, from Afro-Cuban to jazz to orchestral playing, and his instrumental fluency spans repertoire for congas, timpani, xylophone, marimba, and snare and tenor drums, among others.
A veteran of the concert stage, Mr. Fox also has experience as a music researcher and lecture presenter. He was a member of the University of Indianapolis Summer Research Institute, through which he researched and presented findings on the African drum diaspora and its effect on the western world. He was also a part of the inaugural UIndy Arts Spectrum in which he performed the virtuosic “Merlin” for solo marimba accompanied by a multi-media slideshow.
Currently pursuing his Master of Music Degree in percussion performance under the tutelage of Vadim Karpinos at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, he holds a B.M. in music performance from the University of Indianapolis, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude and won the UIndy 2016-2017 Concerto Competition.
Details regarding his debut CD release on Aeolian Classics will be available soon on the Aeolian Classics website.
