Third Coast Percussion is a Grammy Award-winning, artist-run quartet of classically-trained percussionists hailing from the great city of Chicago.
For 15 years, the ensemble has forged a unique path in the musical landscape with virtuosic, energetic performances that celebrate the extraordinary depth and breadth of musical possibilities in the world of percussion.
Third Coast Percussion’s recordings include 8 full-length albums, three EPs, and a number of appearances on other releases. The quartet has put its stamp on iconic works by Philip Glass, John Cage and Steve Reich, and Third Coast has also created first recordings of new works commissioned by the ensemble, in addition to recordings of the ensemble’s own compositions. In 2017 the ensemble won the GRAMMY Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble performance for their recording of Steve Reich’s works for percussion, and in 2019 the ensemble was nominated for its 2nd GRAMMY Award for their album Perpetulum.
