Third Coast Percussion to bring energy to the Clarion

Third Coast Percussion to bring energy to the Clarion

Wed Apr 6, 2016

For more than a decade, Third Coast Percussion has toured the country, developing a reputation through concerts and recordings of inspiring energy and subtle nuance.

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.

On Friday, April 15, these hard-grooving musicians will bring their show to The Clarion at Brazosport College for a 7:30 p.m. performance.

The show is sponsored by Gordon & Nancy Wollam and Robyn & Danny Cochran. The ensemble will also provide special educational outreach programs for selected local schools.

Third Coast Percussion is 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.

Third Coast Percussion is the Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. The members of Third Coast Percussion —Sean Connors, Robert Dillon, Peter Martin, and David Skidmore—hold degrees in music performance from Northwestern University, the Yale School of Music, the Eastman School of Music, the New England Conservatory, and Rutgers University.

Tickets for Third Coast Percussion’s April 15 show are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors, Brazosport College employees and BC Former Student Association members and $10 for students and children.
