Third Coast Percussion is thrilled to make its debut appearance in Puerto Rico, celebrating the music of Carlos Carrillo.

Musica Poetica takes listeners through kaleidoscopic musical contrasts: bright and dark, magical and sinister, surprising and pensive. This collection of works by Carlos Carrillo is inspired by different works of poetry, and combines the colorful sounds of percussion ensemble with cello and clarinet. Expanding the suite over nearly twenty years, Carrillo’s newest addition is “Four Walls”, which features the percussion quartet navigating their way around walls of hanging instruments, creating shifting sound worlds across different physical materials. Born in San Juan Puerto Rico, Carrillo is a distinguished composer and faculty member at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
