PHILIP GLASS: Perpetulum
For fifteen years, GRAMMY-winning ensemble Third Coast Percussion 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).
Though the ensemble's upcoming performances at the 92nd Street Y in New York and DePaul University's School of Music have been canceled. Third Coast Percussion will be coming to audiences live from their Chicago studio in a YouTube live-stream on Saturday, at 7pm CT (8pm ET). The group will be performing music written for them by some of their favorite composers, including University of Chicago alumnus Philip Glass. The concert will also feature an exclusive video interview with Glass as well as a live Q&A.
This concert is presented by Third Coast Percussion with support from UChicago Presents, the 92nd Street Y, and the Chamber Music Society of Detroit.
