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 electronic music mastermind Jlin to pop polymath Devonté Hynes (AKA Blood Orange), live camera projections and video art, this is an evening of music that will thrill both first time concert-goers and contemporary music super fans alike. The program also features multimedia program notes delivered directly by the composers, and interactive Q&A with the audience.
