Aguas da Amazonia

A journey through the Amazon featuring music by Philip Glass


Philip Glass (arr. Third Coast Percussion): Aguas da Amazonia 
Philip Glass: Perpetulum

Third Coast Percussion presents its colorful arrangements of Aguas da Amazonia by renowned American composer Philip Glass. Inspired by a visit to Brazil, each movement of the suite vividly represents the unique character and majesty of various waterways in the Amazon region. The program is rounded out by a performance of Perpetulum, Glass’ first-ever piece for percussion ensemble which was commissioned by Third Coast Percussion in 2018.
