As part of Third Coast Percussion’s 20th Anniversary celebration, the ensemble is thrilled to create commissions with new and old collaborators.

New collaborative programs include:

Tigran Hamasyan: Pianist and composer Tigran Hamasyan crosses boundaries between jazz, crossover classical, electronic, and Armenian folk musics. Hamasyan is composing his first percussion quartet for TCP, to premiere in Fall 2024.

Devonté Hynes / Missy Mazzoli: Dev and Missy’s mutual admiration for one another is the impetus behind a new work they will collaboratively compose for the ensemble to perform.

Sérgio Assad: This giant of the classical guitar world will create a new work for percussion quartet and cello.

Augusta Read Thomas: Long-time TCP collaborator and sought after composer Augusta Read Thomas will compose a new work for the quartet, to premiere in 2025.

Musekiwa Chingodza: The renowned Zimbabwean mbira master reunites with Third Coast Percussion for a new work, to be performed by the quartet alone or side-by-side with the master himself.

Plus: New collaborations in development with Dame Evelyn Glennie, David Longstreth, and more.
