Third Coast Percussion presents a new collaborative program with acclaimed composer and violinist Jessie Montgomery, featuring the Chicago premiere of Montgomery’s first-ever work for percussion ensemble.
Composer/performer Jessie Montgomery is the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Mead Composer-in-Residence and a recent GRAMMY® Award winner. TCP is thrilled to collaborate with Jessie in a dynamic program that equally showcases her excellence as visionary creator and virtuosic performer. Her first-ever work for percussion quartet draws a universe of sounds and characters out of a very compact percussion setup, and is paired with Lou Harrison’s Concerto for Violin with Percussion Orchestra–a tour de force that draws inspiration from the vibrant sounds of Javanese gamelan.
With Jessie Montgomery, violin, and She-e Wu, percussion
$50 premium* / $25 general / $10 student

The performance will take place in Gannon Concert Hall at the Holtschneider Performance Center.
