Chicago-based Third Coast Percussion joins us in WFMT’s Levin Performance Studio for music written for (or arranged by) the ensemble from composers Philip Glass, Jlin (who hails from nearby Gary, Indiana), and Tyondai Braxton.

Founded in 2005, Third Coast Percussion has performed hundreds of concerts across the country, presents an annual concert season at home in Chicago, teaches musicians of all ages and experience levels, and has commissioned dozens of new works by composers including Glenn Kotche, Chris Cerrone, Donnacha Dennehy, Timo Andres, David T. Little, Ted Hearne, and Augusta Read Thomas.
