The Percussion Ensemble offers an opportunity for percussionists to perform percussion ensemble music from the 20th and 21st centuries, and performs regularly each season. Members are encouraged to play many different percussion instruments including timpani, snare drum, bass drum, accessory instruments, xylophone, marimba, and ethnic percussion. Students are taught valuable chamber music skills and instructed on performing techniques, proper set-up of multiple percussion parts, playing advanced rhythms and taking care of instruments
Fun Fun Fun!
How else would you describe young musicians performing “Rock Around the Clock” with drum sticks and mallets on the xylophone and timpani, follow by a solo performance of a Telemann piece. Our Percussion Ensemble is designed to offer young musicians a way to learn something different and FUN! Here is the picture gallery of their latest performance, and the most exciting “Rock Around the Clock” you will see.
Rehearsals are held every Wednesday from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Valley Christian High School. (details)
