UVM Percussion Ensemble

The UVM Percussion Ensemble was founded in 1983 to introduce students to both the standard literature
and improvisational tradition of percussion instruments.


Percussion Ensemble is open to students of all majors at UVM. Emphasis is placed on the art of ensemble playing: listening and responding to ideas of balance, accompaniment, etc. The ensemble presents at least two concerts per year, and occasionally performs off-campus at public schools, colleges, and professional meetings. The repertoire is chosen from the standard literature as well as improvisational percussion music - click here for past programs.


Each student takes a yearly placement audition, mainly so that part assignments can be more accurate.  Since these are auditions are for part assignment purposes, students should register for Percussion Ensemble (MUE 2111, Section D) before the audition.  Percussion Ensemble audition information.
