The Third Coast concert will feature Present Music and Chicago's superb contemporary music ensemble, Third Coast Percussion, for a special performance featuring Daniel Variations by Steve Reich. Reich intended this piece to stand as a "shimmering piece of music and an enduring work" to honor journalist, Daniel Pearl, and his work to connect people in dangerous corners of the world.
Third Coast Percussion will also perform Resounding Earth by Augusta Read Thomas, which features four percussionists playing 300 bells from a wide variety of cultures and historical periods. The piece is conceived as a cultural statement celebrating interdependence and commonality across all cultures; and as a musical statement celebrating the extraordinary beauty and diversity of expression inherent in bell sounds.
