About 3G Percussion
Formed by three brothers, 3G Percussion is a percussion trio dedicated to energetic, adventurous, and cutting-edge performances. The group is led by classically-trained percussionists and original members Jacob Gutierrez, Sarek Gutierrez, and Zach Gutierrez.
The group's performances range from small, intimate chamber music concerts with bells, wood blocks, glass bottles, tin cans to large-scale collaborations with multi-media, drums, marimbas, vibraphones, electronics, and everything in between. An audience can expect to be inspired by the unique timbral, rhythmically complex, and genuine music created by this ensemble.
3G Percussion performs regularly in concert halls and continues to find unique spaces to perform in such as Gray Contemporary, Array Space, Brick at Blue Star Arts Complex, and Rec Room. Recently, 3G Percussion has performed internationally in Canadian cities such as Toronto and London and has been featured on the Houston Public Media Radio Station, the San Antonio Current, and "Live & Local" on KRTU 91.7FM.
3G Percussion has collaborated on events with Lynn Lane and the Transitory Sound and Movement Collective (Houston), The Lamarche-Kitai Duo (Toronto), the Peterson/Hayes Duo (San Antonio) and Space City Performing Arts (Houston). In 2015, the ensemble commissioned five new works by Texas composers from various universities such as the University of Houston, Sam Houston State University, and the University of Texas Rio
Collectively, the members of 3G Percussion have training from the Peabody Conservatory, University of Urbino in Italy, University of Western Ontario, University of Houston, and the University of Texas at San Antonio.
