The Percussion Ensemble serves as a laboratory for musical experimentation with focus on specific performance habits, listening skills, general instrumental techniques, and the development of chamber music skills as related to the discipline of percussion. The ensemble repertoire comprises a wide variety of musical styles, including standard works, contemporary works, marimba band, African and Brazilian drumming, commercial/jazz, and transcriptions. Opportunities for student compositions and arrangements are available and highly encouraged. Participating membership and exact instrumentation will vary according to the specifications of each work. Enrollment is subject to audition or consent of the instructor.
