Third Coast Percussion
April 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The ever inventive Third Coast Percussion, (2017 Grammy Award winners for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble performance for their recording of Steve Reich’s works for percussion), will perform the Bay Area premiere of the first percussion quartet written by Philip Glass, who accepted the commission to feed his interest in new challenges.
Third Coast Percussion is a Grammy-winning, artist-run quartet of classically-trained percussionists hailing from the great city of Chicago. For over ten years, the ensemble has forged a unique path in the musical landscape with virtuosic, energetic performances that celebrate the extraordinary depth and breadth of musical possibilities in the world of percussion. The ensemble has been praised for “commandingly elegant” (New York Times) performances, the “rare power” (Washington Post) of their recordings, and “an inspirational sense of fun and curiosity” (Minnesota Star-Tribune). The four members of Third Coast are also accomplished teachers, and since 2012, have served as ensemble-in-residence at the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
