Percussion Ensemble

The Percussion and Marimba Ensemble is renowned for theatrical presentations of the unusual and unexpected. The ensemble, consisting of select percussionists plays a variety of unique music, most of which is from 1930 to the present. Guest composers and performers frequently work with students, including such artists as NEXUS and Zeitgeist New Music Ensemble. The Percussion Ensemble has been a guest on the Walker Art Center’s Young Arts Series. The group has also performed numerous live accompaniments to silent film and in 2003 premiered an original film as a visual accompaniment to Henry Cowell's Ostinato Pianissimo. Permission of the instructor is required to participate in the ensemble. Percussion and Marimba Ensemble rehearses on Monday's from 4:45 p.m. - 5:55 p.m. in A135. Interested students should register for MUSC 243 for 0 or 1 credit.
