Third Coast Percussion was scheduled to make its Carnegie Hall debut on January 8, 2021, with a special performance of its new collaborative program Metamorphosis. Though that performance was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Third Coast is glad to present a broadcast of Metamorphosis to celebrate the occasion on January 8 at 7:30 Central. Recorded at The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center, home of La Jolla Music Society, this performance of Metamorphosis features movement artists Ron Myles and Quentin Robinson, with new music by Jlin and Tyondai Braxton, plus Third Coast Percussion’s critically acclaimed arrangements of Philip Glass‘s Aguas da Amazonia.
