  • Admission:
  • Location:
  • Address:
    4373 Mason Pond Dr., Fairfax, VA 22030

Join the Grammy ® Award-winning ensemble Third Coast Percussion for a livestreamed conversation exploring how the artist-run ensembled is managed and the unique ways they are innovating during the era of COVID-19. The ensemble, known for using traditional instruments like xylophones, marimbas, and vibraphones, along with unusual found objects including wooden planks and singing bowls, is continually expanding the extraordinary sonic possibilities of the percussion repertoire. During the discussion, they will delve into what drives their entrepreneurial spirit and how they are responding to and engaging in dialogues surrounding racial justice in America and representation in programming.  

As one of the 2020-2021 Virtual Mason Artist-in-Residence, Third Coast Percussion will be participating in a variety of activities to engage and inspire the diverse audiences served by the Center for the Arts. These residencies are designed to foster meaningful exchanges between our communities and the Artists-in-Residence, creating opportunities for transformational experiences in and out of the classroom—even digitally. 

The moderated conversation will be followed by live questions and answers with the audience tuning in. This event is planned in partnership with the Arts Management Program at George Mason University.
