Third Coast Percussion
Third Coast Percussion presents concerts for all audiences, from the percussion novice to the contemporary music aficionado. Third Coast has introduced percussion music to audiences across the country, including concerts at University of Notre Dame – DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, Music on the Edge (Pittsburgh), Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), Le Poisson Rouge (New York), Millennium Park – Pritzker Pavilion (Chicago), EMPAC (NY), Kennedy Center Millennium Stage (DC), and Taliesin – Frank Lloyd Wright (WI). TCP has also championed some of the most formidable repertoire for percussion including the music of Luciano Berio, Philippe Manoury, Wolfgang Rihm, Louis Andriessen, Martin Bresnick, George Crumb, Arvo Pärt, Steve Reich, Frederick Rzewski, Toru Takemitsu, Tan Dun, and Iannis Xenakis. The ensemble is constantly adding new works to this already expansive repertoire.
Third Coast is active in developing new works, with commissions and premieres by Augusta Read Thomas, David T. Little, Ted Hearne, Kirsten Broberg, and Matthew Barnson.
The members of Third Coast Percussion — Owen Clayton Condon, Robert Dillon, Peter Martin, and David Skidmore — hold degrees in music performance from Northwestern University, the Yale School of Music, the New England Conservatory, and Rutgers University.
Third Coast Percussion performs exclusively with Pearl/Adams Musical Instruments, Zildjian Cymbals, and Vic Firth sticks and mallets.
