Different Drummer is a multi-genre chamber ensemble comprised of violin, cello, double bass, and percussive tap dancing. The recipients of a 2015 Artist Support Grant from the Jack Straw Foundation, they have just released a self-titled album of traditional Irish, Scottish, Gypsy, Classical and Jazz repertoire. This unlikely ensemble presents an exhilarating visual and musical show. Brandon Vance (violin), Anna Doak (bass), and Gretchen Yanover (cello) are members of the Northwest Sinfonietta, the NW regions premier chamber orchestra. Their abilities fluidly cross genre boundaries with this project. Mark Mendonca (tap) has performed on Broadway, television and on concert stages around the world. The ensemble performs in a variety of combinations and settings. Learn more.
