Jessie Montgomery + Third Coast Percussion at DePaul University
Third Coast Percussion presents a new collaborative program with acclaimed composer and violinist Jessie Montgomery, featuring the Chicago premiere of Montgomery’s first-ever work for percussion ensemble.
Composer/performer Jessie Montgomery is the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Mead Composer-in-Residence and was recently named Musical America‘s 2023 Composer of the Year. TCP is thrilled to collaborate with Jessie in a dynamic program that equally showcases her excellence as visionary creator and virtuosic performer. Her first-ever work for percussion quartet draws a universe of sounds and characters out of a very compact percussion setup, and is paired with Lou Harrison’s Concerto for Violin with Percussion Orchestra–a tour de force that draws inspiration from the vibrant sounds of Javanese gamelan.
