TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2018 // THIRD COAST PERCUSSION + WIND SYMPHONY

Performing Arts Series: Third Coast Percussion with special guests the Ohio University Wind Symphony // Andrew Trachsel, Conductor

Third Coast Percussion is a Grammy Award-winning, artist-run quartet of classically-trained percussionists hailing from the great city of Chicago. For over ten years, the ensemble 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). The four members of Third Coast are also accomplished teachers, and since 2013, have served as ensemble-in-residence at the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.

Third Coast Percussion will be joined by the Ohio University Wind Symphony performing RADIANT CHiLD by DAVID T. LITTLE – a micro-concerto for percussion quartet and wind symphony. In three connected movements, it explores joy, fear, the redundancy of work, and the ultimate need for release that we all experience, but in particular in regard to parenthood. The work was co-commissioned by the Ohio University School of Music.
