Episode 15 — Sean Connors (Third Coast Percussion)
The latest episode of Classical Chicago features an interview with Third Coast Percussion's Sean Connors. In this episode, Sean discusses TCP's latest album Paddle to the Sea (available February 9). Anchoring the album is the Grammy Award-winning ensemble’s original new collaborative composition Paddle to the Sea, conceived as a live soundtrack to the charming, Oscar-nominated 1966 film of the same name. Other works include Jacob Druckman’s Reflections on the Nature of Water, selections from Philip Glass’s 12 Pieces for Ballet (originally composed for piano and arranged by Third Coast Percussion), and Zimbabwean Musekiwa Chingdoza’s arrangement of Chigwaya, a song from the Shona tradition used to call water spirits. The Dallas Morning News called Third Coast’s live performance of Paddle to the Sea “arresting and enjoyable.” TheaterJones called it “unforgettable” and said, “There was something magical about the performance, but it is almost impossible to describe the experience in mere words.”
