Third Coast Percussion
Artpark Emerald Grove Stage
Third Coast Percussion (TCP) is a GRAMMY® Award-winning Chicago-based percussion quartet and GRAMMY®-nominated composer collective. For over fifteen years, the ensemble has created exciting and unexpected performances that constantly redefine the classical music experience. 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).
TCP’s program for this performance entitled “Perspectives” invites listeners to embark on an exciting musical adventure, featuring virtuosic repertoire written for TCP by some of today’s leading music creators. Iconic film composer Danny Elfman, innovative electronic music producer Jlin, American legend Philip Glass, and groundbreaking flute/electronics duo Flutronix embody the diversity of 21st century music making, drawing inspiration from a wide range of influences and points of view.
“Third Coast Percussion, with albums like Perspectives, continues to push percussion in new directions, blurring musical boundaries and beguiling new listeners.” – Tom Huizenga, NPR Music
