The University of Connecticut Percussion Ensemble is an integral part of the percussion program. The ensemble strives to bring relevant and exciting compositions for percussion to the UConn stage. Both undergraduate and graduate percussion majors perform in the ensemble as it serves to strengthen students’ musical and technical abilities on all percussion instruments. The members develop skills in the chamber ensemble that will serve them in many aspects of performing, creating and teaching music. The ensemble plays a wide variety of repertoire from various periods and countries. Students play myriad instruments that range from triangle to timpani to table-tops. Audiences find that percussion literature, although sometimes unfamiliar, has widespread appeal. The UConn percussion ensemble performs throughout the academic year and has been featured in various off-campus events.
