Third Coast Percussion with Rachel Calloway, mezzo-soprano

Date(s): 

Friday, February 16, 2018 - 7:30pm

Third Coast Percussion presents three Ligeti works: the super virtuosic Continuum; a whimsical song cycle; and Poème Symphonique, the "spectacle" for 100 mechanical metronomes, produced here with UChicago students. Pulitzer Prize-finalist Christopher Cerrone takes Ligeti's work as a point of departure, creating beautiful, haunting melodies interspersed with dramatic, lightning fast rhythms that swirl around the room. 

6:30 PM pre-concert lecture with Jennifer Iverson.

There will be a post-concert talkback on stage with Third Coast Percussion, poet G. C. Waldrep, composer Christopher Cerrone, and Steven Rings, discussing Waldrep's work and his collaboration with Cerrone and TCP.
