The New York Times calls red fish blue fish a "dynamic percussion ensemble from the University of California." Founded twenty years ago by Steven Schick, the San Diego based ensemble performs, records, and premieres works by important composers ranging from Cage, Xenakis, as well as UC San Diego's Roger Reynolds. 
The concert comes just before Schick's induction into the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame this November. rfbf is widely considered to be a leading source of emerging percussionists who have been mentored by Schick at UC San Diego. Successful alumsinclude Ross Karre, now with ICE; Aiyun Huang, who heads the percussion department at McGill University; Morris Palter, Assistant Professor at University of Alaska, Fairbanks, where he is also artistic director of the 64.8 percussion group; and Justin DeHart, Chapman University faculty and member of the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet.
