The Percussion Ensemble features a variety of music from around the world, including African inspired dance, transcriptions of classic works, and new literature for percussion. We welcome percussionists with a variety of backgrounds interested in musical growth. First-year piano students interested in gaining ensemble credits should contact Dr. Schutz ahead of time for assistance with audition preparation.
The ensemble typically rehearses every Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30, with members required to arrive by 6:15 to set up percussion equipment. We anticipate using this as our primary time for rehearsals this year.
If you have ensemble-specific questions please contact Dr. Schutz at firstname.lastname@example.org. For audition related questions, please contact his assistant at email@example.com.
Additional information: This year-long course (1GP3, 2GP3, 3GP3, 4GP3) carries 3 units of academic credit. Students are strongly encouraged (although not required) to enrol to receive academic recognition for their work.
