Percussion & Improvisation Ensemble

Students register for MUS 329 Chamber Music Ensembles. The percussion ensemble provides the percussion student, through rehearsal and performance activities, a chamber ensemble experience comprised of a wide range of repertoire and performance media encompassing the various styles of the avant-garde, standard works, transcriptions, original student and/or faculty compositions and arrangements. Development of professional chamber ensemble skills is at the core of the course objectives, in addition to gaining knowledge and appreciation of selected percussion ensemble repertoire. The development of group improvisational skills is also an essential aspect of this course.  Opportunities for student composition and arranging for percussion ensemble are available and are highly encouraged. Senior students serve as conductors on selected repertoire.
