Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center CHICAGO CONCERT SEASON

Third Coast Percussion is thrilled to celebrate the music of Carlos Carrillo, with an opening set performed by La Cantera.

Música Poética takes listeners through kaleidoscopic musical contrasts: bright and dark, magical and sinister, surprising and pensive. This collection of works by Carlos Carrillo is inspired by different works of poetry, and combines the colorful sounds of percussion ensemble with cello and clarinet. Expanding the suite over nearly twenty years, Carrillo’s newest addition is “Four Walls”, which features the percussion quartet navigating their way around walls of hanging instruments, creating shifting sound worlds across different physical materials. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Carrillo is a distinguished composer and faculty member at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Online ticket sales are sold out. Limited tickets may be available at the door. 

The Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center is a storefront space on Armitage Avenue. Look for the yellow and red painted patterns and “SRBCC” logo. Street parking is available on Armitage Ave. and the surrounding blocks.
