The Eastern Percussion Ensemble encompasses a broad spectrum of musical styles from original and transcribed works in the percussion and marimba ensemble repertoire. The performance focused on American composers as part of the Performing Arts Department's "Year of the Arts" initiative, which utilizes an American Identity and theme.

The ensemble consists of psychology major Chelsea Dauphinais '14 from Brooklyn; undeclared major Michael French '14 from Fairfield; music major Brittany Gould '13 from North Grosvenordale; music major Paul Kamenitsky '12 from Wallingford; music major Alex Renner '11 from Uxbridge, MA; music major Alex Smith '12 from Windham; communication major Ethan Tollin '14 from Riverside; and music major Bethany Vorchheimer '12 from Vernon.
