Percussion Ensemble

The Eastern Percussion Ensemble encompasses a broad spectrum of musical styles from original and transcribed works in the percussion and marimba ensemble repertoire to traditional West African hand drumming. Since it's inception in 2006, the Ensemble has played host to several guest artists and clinicians such as Nathan Daughtrey, Tomm Roland and Arthur Lipner.

In addition to performing a concert at the conclusion of each semester, the Percussion Ensemble also performs at various campus events, recruiting concerts at local and regional high schools and the Percussive Arts Society Connecticut Chapter Day of Percussion.

For more information on the ensemble, please contact Jeff Calissi.
