Featured Projects

Philip Glass

“What Glass is doing is changing the face of music for our time and all time.”
– The Daily Telegraph


Through his operas, his symphonies, his compositions for his own ensemble, and his wide-ranging collaborations with artists ranging from Twyla Tharp to Allen Ginsberg, Woody Allen to David Bowie, Philip Glass has had an extraordinary and unprecedented impact upon the musical and intellectual life of his times.

In 2018, Third Coast Percussion will premiere a new work by Glass – his first ever composed specifically for percussion ensemble.

The new work will be 15-20 minutes in duration, and be paired on a concert program with a new work commissioned for TCP from Gavin Bryars, plus works by Third Coast Percussion that draw inspiration from Glass’s work.

Projected premiere in December 2018.
Co-commissioning opportunities available.
