Third Coast Percussion Residency

Grammy Award-winning ensemble, Third Coast Percussion, returns to Northwest Arkansas to perform John Luther Adams’s expansive work Inuksuit, as part of Walton Arts Center’s Artosphere: Art & Nature Festival. The title, ‘Inuksuit, refers to the Stonehenge like structures in the Artic that the Inuit people used as markers to navigate their space. Inspired by the stones, Adams composed rhythmic layers within his work to represent the structures. The New York Times calls Inuksuit “the ultimate environmental piece”, making it a fitting community performance for Artosphere. Written for 9 to 99 musicians, Third Coast is currently recruiting performers for an outdoor evening performance.
