PERFORMING ARTS LIVE
Two ensembles that are redefining classical music for the twenty-first century join forces in a rare and exclusive evening of boundary-breaking music. Flutronix is a duo comprising critically acclaimed flutists and composers Nathalie Joachim and Allison Loggins-Hull, who are regarded for their “unique blend of classical music, hip-hop, electronic programming and soulful vocals reminiscent of neo-R&B stars like Erykah Badu” (Wall Street Journal). Third Coast Percussion is a Grammy Award-winning ensemble that has been hailed for their “virtuosity and deft, precisely timed wit” (Washington Post). Together, they break new ground with a virtuosic and energetic performance of new music, including a collaboratively composed new work Rubix, which seamlessly bridges their unique sounds to create a rich and riveting sonic universe.
|This engagement of Third Coast Percussion with Flutronix is made possible in part through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
