World Premiere Third Coast Percussion with Glenn Kotche & Iron Giant
Third Coast Percussion is a GRAMMY Award-winning, artist-run quartet 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 quartet’s curiosity and eclectic taste have led to a series of unlikely collaborations that have produced exciting new work including WILCO drummer and composer Glenn Kotche’s new piece, commissioned by the Center, that Glenn will WORLD PREMIERE along with Third Coast Percussion and Iron Giant, a UAB Alumni Percussion ensemble, on the Jemison Concert Hall stage.
