Percussion Ensemble

The internationally acclaimed U of U Percussion Ensemble performs a wide-range of percussive repertoire, from classical to contemporary, to non-western styles and jazz influenced works. The ensemble has won the Percussive Arts Society International Percussion Ensemble Contest on multiple occasions, and has also appeared at the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic. The Chamber Percussion Group is a select group of percussionists within the larger Percussion Ensemble that focuses its repertoire on classics of percussion chamber music (Cage, Reich, Harrison) as well as new music (recent commissions include Anders Koppel and Christopher Deane).
