University of Chicago Presents CHICAGO CONCERT SEASON

7:30 p.m.

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.

Third Coast Percussion brings the idea of using a single type of material in performance—a wood table, in the case of Belgian composer Thierry de Mey’s piece, and a drumhead in Donnacha Dennehy’s new work inspired by playing techniques of the Irish bodhrán drum. The ensemble rounds out the program by honoring Steve Reich’s 80th birthday with his iconic Sextet, in celebration of the ensemble's release of an all-Reich album on Cedille Records
