“…sonically spectacular…” – The Chicago Tribune
Praised by Time Out Chicago for “chops, polish, and youthful joy in performing,” Third Coast Percussion uses an impressive array of percussion instruments to create a performance experience like no other. With exceptional talent and dedicated artistry, this “sonically spectacular” (Chicago Tribune) quartet combines the driving intensity of drums, the beautiful warmth of marimbas and vibraphones, and the surprisingly exotic sounds of everyday objects to make music that is playful, memorable and profound. In performances around the country, the Chicago-based ensemble has swiftly gained national attention for effortlessly combining the energy of a rock concert with the precision and sophistication of classical chamber music.
Third Coast Percussion has established a reputation for its commitment to expanding percussion repertoire and setting the highest standard in new music performance. Passionately dedicated to modern music, Third Coast has commissioned, premiered, and performed pieces by many of today’s preeminent up-and-coming composers, programming them alongside 20th century masterpieces for percussion.
