Third Coast Percussion

Fri, Mar 6, 2020 / 8:00 pm

Accompanying the Oscar®-nominated film Paddle to the Sea live, Third Coast Percussion interweaves original compositions with water-inspired works to create a piece both spirited and serene.

Whether tranquil or troubled, water is an uncompromising force of nature and indomitable global connector of countries, economies and cultures. Exploring that idea with an “inspirational sense of fun and curiosity” (Minnesota Star-Tribune), Grammy® winners Third Coast Percussion present Paddle to the Sea. Inspired by a children’s book and Oscar®-nominated film, this film-with-live-soundtrack journey follows a Canadian boy who carves a wooden figure and sets it on an epic journey across lakes, rivers and, eventually, the Atlantic Ocean. Accompanying the film live, Third Coast interweaves original compositions with water-inspired works from Philip Glass, Jacob Druckman and Zimbabwe’s Shona people. Drawing on water’s own dynamics, Paddle is alternately spirited and serene—letting audiences consider mankind’s impact on waterways while contemplating their exuberant majesty and infinite possibility.

Join ethnomusicologist and percussionist Dr. Nolan Warden for discussion about the evening’s performance.
