Carnegie Museum of Art Presents Sound Series: Third Coast Percussion

Carnegie Museum of Art, as part of a new collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum , presents a performance by Third Coast Percussion in the Carnegie Lecture Hall, on January 29, 2011.

Praised by Time Out Chicago for “chops, polish, and youthful joy in performing,” Third Coast Percussion uses an impressive array of percussion instruments to create a performance experience like no other. With exceptional talent and dedicated artistry, this “sonically spectacular” (Chicago Tribune) quartet combines the driving intensity of drums, the beautiful warmth of marimbas and vibraphones, and the surprisingly exotic sounds of everyday objects to make music that is playful, memorable and profound.

Passionately dedicated to modern music, Third Coast has commissioned, premiered, and performed pieces by many of today’s preeminent up-and-coming composers, programming them alongside 20th century masterpieces for percussion.

This event is co-presented by Carnegie Museum of Art, The Andy Warhol Museum, and the Music on the Edge series of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Music.
