Saturday’s concert is a percussion extravaganza with the Third Coast Percussion premiering their collaborative composition Reaction Yield.  They are joined by Spektral Quartet to perform Augusta Read Thomas’ Selene (Moon Chariot Rituals). The Chicago Harp Quartet reveals a kaleidoscopic new work—Plectra by Carolyn O’Brien, followed by Arcomusical celebrating the subtle sounds of the Afro-Brazilian berimbau.
