Our students have the opportunity to participate in several unique percussion experiences, including traditional percussion ensemble, marimba ensemble and the steel drum band. Participation in the traditional and marimba ensembles requires a strong background in performance of numerous traditional percussion instruments.
For students with an interest in music of the Caribbean, the steel drum band offers the chance to perform at both the beginning and advanced performance levels. Students with a basic understanding of note-reading and some keyboard experience will find playing a steel pan a great experience.
Participation in the various ensembles is by audition during the first week of classes in the fall semester.
