Grammy-award winning ensemble Third Coast Percussion closes VNM’s 2017-18 concert series with their first ever performance in Vancouver.

This breathtaking program includes internationally-acclaimed composer Augusta Read ThomasResounding Earth. Written specially for Third Coast Percussion, Resounding Earth brings together over 125 bells from around the world to create a beautiful and completely unprecedented sound world. Also on the program is Steve Reich’s Mallet Quartet, as well as a movement of Wild Sound, a work composed for Third Coast Percussion by composer and percussionist Glenn Kotche, from the iconic Chicago rock band Wilco.
