Join us for our first livestream concert of the 20/21 season! We'll be featuring music written for us by Devonté Hynes (aka Blood Orange), from our 2019 album Fields. The concert starts at 5:30pm PT / 6:30pm MT / 7:30pm CT / 8:30pm ET, and Dev will be joining us live (remotely) for a Q&A after the performance of his works. In addition, we'll be featuring a screening of a music video featuring music from the album's eponymous track and movement by Rena Butler of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.
Each year, Third Coast Percussion presents 4-5 concerts of percussion music in their hometown of Chicago. In concert halls, theaters, and art galleries, the ensemble joins with world-renowned performers for programs that include premieres of new works for percussion alongside modern classic percussion music.
Plus, we're inviting creators to participate with us! Creators of all kinds are invited to respond to the music from Fields, and submit your creation for sharing on our social media and during the livestream. Click here to learn more about this opportunity. We can't wait to see your work!
