Grab your blanket and come enjoy a free immersive musical performance at Gallagher Way! Third Coast Percussion will perform pieces from their Grammy award-winning album of Steve Reich's music, as well as music written for Third Coast Percussion by Glenn Kotche of Wilco and Ryan Lott of indie rock band Son Lux. The program also features the music of iconic American composers Philip Glass and John Cage, and original music by ensemble members.
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.
With multiple stages throughout Gallagher Way, guests will experience a dynamic yet intimate outdoor experience that combines music and visual elements. Video art and live projections of the performance will enhance the experience throughout.
The Line Up is free to attend. Please arrive early, as space is limited. Food and beverage will be available for purchase.
In the event of inclement weather, Gallagher Way will decide by 12:00pm if the concert will go on as scheduled.
