Pfleeger Concert Hall

Two ensembles that are redefining classical music for the 21st century join forces for a special double bill performance. Flutronix (critically acclaimed flutists and composers Nathalie Joachim and Allison Loggins-Hull) and the GRAMMY® Award-winning Third Coast Percussion (Sean Connors, Robert Dillon, Peter Martin, David Skidmore) collaboratively composed a new work called Rubix, inspired by musical games that tie the sound worlds of these performers and composers together.

The program features solo sets by each ensemble in addition to their new co-created work. 

This engagement of Third Coast Percussion is made possible in part through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. www.midatlanticarts.org

Before the Performance: Meet the Perspective Composer!

from Third Coast Percussion's 2022 GRAMMY-nominated album

A math lover, a former steel factory worker and a proud resident of Gary Indiana, Jlin, (née Jerrilyn Patton) has risen to become one of the most distinctive composers in America and one of the most influential women in electronic music. Jlin’s introduction to producing music stems from Chicago footwork, but diverse influences ranging from Igor Stravinsky and Philip Glass to Miles Davis and Eartha Kitt, give Jlin’s complex percussion-driven work a sophisticated polyrhythmic sound all its own.

In anticipation of Flutronix and Third Coast Percussion's upcmoing Mid Atlantic tour, Rowan Music Industry Faculty member Barbara Adams interviewed Jlin over zoom, co-hosted with Shenandoah Conservatory, the University of Richmond's Modlin Center, the University of Maryland's Clarice Smith Center, Rowan University's Marie Rader Presenting Series, and Zoellner Arts Center at Lehigh University.
