Percussion Ensemble Festival

We are pleased to announce that this years 8th annual Percussion Ensemble Festival will be held at UNCP on March 22, 2014 . The guest artist/clinicians for this year will be announced soon. The festival is open to any and all percussion ensembles ranging from elementary school to college. The event is free for PAS members and $5 for non-members. Anyone registering for PAS the day of the event will get in for FREE!

This is a non-competitive festival. Each group is asked to prepare 1 or 2 percussion ensemble pieces that they will perform for everyone. After each performance the clinicians will work with the ensemble to improve their percussion skills.

If you and or your students are new to percussion ensemble you can also come as a non-performer and just soak in the knowledge during the day.

This event is co-sponsored by Innovative Percussion, Sabian, Yamaha, Evans and Black Swamp Percussion.
