Philip Glass is one of the world’s greatest living composers, acclaimed for his stunning soundtracks and ground-breaking operas, but in this concert, there’s an intense focus on Glass himself, as a pianist and composer. A rare opportunity joins Glass with exceptional musicians, the violinist Tim Fain and Grammy winners Third Coast Percussion.
