“[Third Coast Percussion’s] collaborative spirit has already made them one of the best percussion ensembles in the country—and their upcoming projects could make them the biggest.” — Chicago Reader
“Philip Glass has risen to become the world's most celebrated contemporary composer.” — The Guardian
“Hynes is heir to cross-disciplinary, nearly indefinable mavericks like Prince, David Bowie and Michael Jackson.” — The Record (NPR Music)
Recent Grammy Award-winners Third Coast Percussion return to Liquid Music with new works by two incredible musical minds: the iconic American composer Philip Glass and the pop polymath Devonté Hynes, a.k.a. Blood Orange. Glass's Perpetulum, written for Third Coast Percussion and co-commissioned by Liquid Music, is his first ever work for percussion ensemble. Hynes, who has also become a Glass collaborator in recent years, brings his “dense modern pop with roots in hip-hop, R&B and NYC culture” (The Guardian) to an entirely new sound world in his piece for Third Coast Percussion. More concert details to be announced.
Tickets: $30 ($25 Liquid Music /SPCO subscribers, FREE for children ages 6-17 and students)
