Steve Reich, who has been called “our greatest living composer” (New York Times), celebrates his 80th birthday in 2016, and the year also marks the 40th anniversary of the premiere of Music for 18 Musicians, considered by many to be his greatest composition. Two of Chicago’s world-class ensembles, Eighth Blackbird and Third Coast Percussion, team up to perform this seminal composition.
