Third Coast Percussion presents Rituals and Meditations

Rituals permeate every aspect of human life, and music is no exception. An evening of inventive new works for percussion explores how music plays a role in everything from renewing a world in chaos to the pursuit of wellness through meditation practice.

Missy Mazzoli's Millennium Canticles imagines the musicians as a post-apocalyptic group of survivors who struggle to remember the rituals and stories that once made them human. Gauntlet by Mark Applebaum transforms hundreds of tiny everyday objects into the sonic backdrop for a grand procession. Finally, an original composition by Third Coast Percussion brings the focus inward, exploring the ritual of meditation through sound.

Program to include:
Missy Mazzoli: Millennium Canticles (World Premiere)
Mark Applebaum: Gauntlet (World Premiere)
Third Coast Percussion: New piece (World Premiere)
