Third Coast Percussion’s livestream programs have reached 40,000+ viewers from 24 countries and 5 continents. The ensemble has partnered with U.S. and international presenters to bring high-quality programming directly to their audiences.
“Third Coast Percussion is not only creating terrifically creative programming and performing it impeccably, they’re far and away one of the most entrepreneurial and engaging music ensembles to hit the airwaves. Co-sponsoring one of their livestreams was exciting for us and our audiences—a resounding success!”
– Margaret Lawrence, Director of Programming, Moss Arts Center, Virginia Tech
“Everything about Third Coast Percussion is amazing, and the results of their virtual programming were beyond anything we could have imagined. From master classes to community engagement activities to a live performance, everything was meticulously planned and flawlessly executed while still maintaining the highest level of artistic excellence. We had 30 times more viewers online than we normally would during a live performance. And most importantly, working with these artists and staff members was a dream – I would collaborate with them again any time!”
– Steven Linville, Director of Productions, Assistant Professor of Music, DePauw University
Third Coast Percussion can partner with your organization to license video content that meets a variety of programming needs, including:
“Third Coast Percussion is not only a powerhouse ensemble of prolific musicians, they are also a powerhouse ensemble of educators and innovators. We would not have had a successful digital residency if they were not such amazing collaborators, always working in lockstep with us to achieve our unique goals for each engagement. There is not a better group of artists out there doing such robust educational and performance work!”
– Haley Smyser, Programming and Education Manager, Center for the Arts at George Mason University

– Elizabeth Duffell, Director of Artistic Engagement, Meany Center for the Performing Arts
