2021 has arrived, and with it comes a fresh outlook and new opportunities. We’re celebrating the change in the air on January 20 with our first livestreamed performance of the year. Click here to join the livestream.
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.
We’ll perform repertoire that’s new to us, share exciting news about upcoming projects, and more. Bring your curiosity along; we’ll engage in our signature live Q&A with viewers after the show.
“Kodama” by Rodrigo Bussad was commissioned by the Chicago Center for Contemporary Composition.
“Press” by Devonté Hynes was commissioned by the Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation.
