As the percussion section has moved from the back of the orchestra to center stage, Third Coast Percussion has been leading the way. Incorporating their classical training with stylistic influences ranging from Zimbabwean mbira music to art rock, the ensemble lights up the stage at every concert with “an inspirational sense of fun and curiosity.” (Minnesota Star-Tribune). This program highlights the very best of the ensemble’s recent work, including new pieces by musical icon Philip Glass, musical polymath Devonté Hynes, and the ensemble’s own compositions.
