DescriptionThird Coast Percussion presents three Ligeti works: the super virtuosic Continuum; a whimsical song cycle; and Poème Symphonique, the "spectacle" for 100 mechanical metronomes, produced here with UChicago students. Pulitzer Prize-finalist Christopher Cerrone takes Ligeti's work as a point of departure, creating beautiful, haunting melodies interspersed with dramatic, lightning fast rhythms that swirl around the room.

6:30 PM pre-concert lecture with Jennifer Iverson.

There will be a post-concert talkback on stage with Third Coast Percussion, poet G. C. Waldrep, composer Christopher Cerrone, and Steven Rings, discussing Waldrep's work and his collaboration with Cerrone and TCP.

Learn about how to "Adopt-a-Metronome" from the performance of Poème Symphonique!
