A Third Coast Percussion performance is a one-of-a-kind event. The ensemble reinvents the classical music experience every night with music that is as inviting as it is unexpected. With repertoire ranging from living legend Philip Glass to contemporary music master Augusta Read Thomas to pop polymath Devonté Hynes (AKA Blood Orange), live camera projections and video art, and instruments from around the world, this is an evening of music that will thrill both first time concert-goers and contemporary music super fans alike.
