DePaul University’s Holtschneider Performance Center CHICAGO CONCERT SEASON

Third Coast Percussion presents Perspectives at DePaul University’s Holtschneider Performance Center, featuring the Chicago premiere of Danny Elfman’s Percussion Quartet.

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.

Third Coast Percussion is delighted to share our first live performance in Chicago in 2022! Join us for a thrilling sonic adventure celebrating the release of our new album, Perspectives, which includes innovative works by iconic film composer Danny Elfman, groundbreaking electronic dance music producer Jlin, and American legend Philip Glass. We’ll also pay tribute to our last two GRAMMY® nominated albums, featuring extraordinary compositions by multifaceted musician Clarice Assad, and pop polymath Devonté Hynes (aka Blood Orange). This program is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat with music that is at once bold, introspective, driving, and unpredictable.
