Third Coast Percussion
In 2005, four classical percussion students at Northwestern University began giving educational concerts in Chicago. Fourteen years, one Grammy award, and numerous world premieres later, Third Coast Percussion continues to use their “creative fearlessness with reverent precision” (BBC Music Magazine) to broaden the musical scope of percussion and, in doing so, redefine the world’s perception of modern classical music. This “brilliant” (The Independent) quartet comes to Santa Fe with mallets, marimbas, Thai gongs, tuned cowbells, and metal pipes for a "sonically spectacular" (Chicago Tribune) concert that features Perpetulum, Philip Glass’ first work for percussion ensemble, co-commissioned by Performance Santa Fe.
