I am excited to co-present Chicago’s wonderful percussion quartet, Third Coast Percussion. Co-presented by Britt Festivals Education and Engagement, Third Coast will visit schools in Southern Oregon and present a master class and concert at SOU.

Hailed by The New Yorker as “vibrant” and “superb,” Third Coast Percussion explores and expands the extraordinary sonic possibilities of the percussion repertoire, delivering exciting performances for audiences of all kinds. Formed in 2005, Third Coast Percussion has developed an international reputation with concerts and recordings of inspiring energy and subtle nuance.

These “hard-grooving” musicians (New York Times) have become known for ground-breaking collaborations across a wide range of disciplines, including concerts and residency projects with engineers at the University of Notre Dame, architects at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, astronomers at the Adler Planetarium, and more. The ensemble enhances the performances it offers with cutting edge new media, including free iPhone and iPad apps that allow audience members to create their own musical performances and take a deeper look at the music performed by Third Coast Percussion.

Master Class @ SOU – 1:30-3:30pm – Music Recital Hall

Concert “Points of Contact” @ SOU – 7:3pm – Music Recital Hall
