TCP presents Perpetulum: a recital program that has something for everyone. The ensemble reinvents the classical music experience 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.
Each year, Third Coast Percussion presents 4-5 concerts of percussion music in their hometown of Chicago. In concert halls, theaters, and art galleries, the ensemble joins with world-renowned performers for programs that include premieres of new works for percussion alongside modern classic percussion music.
