THIRD COAST PERCUSSION

Education is a pillar of Third Coast Percussion’s mission. TCP’s “Think Outside the Drum” is a fun, interactive, and educational presentation introducing the building blocks of music (rhythm, melody, and timbre) through active participation in a series of interactive activities including clapping, singing, and a listening game. Students learn about the extraordinary range of percussion instruments that can be found in cultures around the world, as well as in their own kitchen cabinets.

This virtual educational outreach activity is presented by Beaches Fine Arts Series for elementary school students. The presentation is divided into 5 short, 15 minute videos that may be used at the convenience of teachers.

To gain access to the videos, please sign up below.  We will send you a link to the virtual program, which will remain online for your convenience until May 31.

Enjoy the shows!

THIRD COAST PERCUSSION

Third Coast Percussion is a Grammy Award-winning Chicago-based percussion quartet. For fifteen years, the ensemble has created exciting and unexpected performances that constantly redefine the classical music experience. The ensemble has been praised for “commandingly elegant” (New York Times) performances, the “rare power” (Washington Post) of their recordings, and “an inspirational sense of fun and curiosity” (Minnesota Star-Tribune). Third Coast Percussion maintains a busy tour schedule, with past performances in 35 of the 50 states and Washington, DC, plus international tour dates on 4 continents. Third Coast Percussion has commissioned and premiered over 60 new works by composers including Philip Glass, Augusta Read Thomas, and Devonté Hynes.
