Prairie Percussion 2018!

 

Looking forward to another great year at the MBA PPW!

This summer’s workshop will be from August 7-10 and I can’t wait to see our returning participants and meet all the new drum friends who will be coming to join in on the Drum Fun!

I am so grateful to all of the participants, the guest artists, the wonderful educators, and dear friends who have all worked with me to make sure that this workshop has grown and developed and thrived, and now, in its 7th year, is part of the MBA family of summer programs. When I started this program I hoped that this workshop would help grow the percussion community in Manitoba and I am so honoured that so many people have given so much of their time and talents to help make that hope into a reality!

Registration is open for this year’s workshop. Click here for more information or to register.

We are back in the amazing facilities at the Desautels Faculty of Music and I am starting to work on the classes, guest artists, masterclasses and special events for this year’s workshop. Its going to be another great year of Drum Love!

University of Manitoba Percussion Ensemble

The University of Manitoba Percussion Ensemble had the amazing opportunity to “open” for So Percussion on January 24, 2016 as part of the Winnipeg New Music Festival at the Centennial Concert Hall. We Performed works by Joan Tower and David Lang and had the chance to meet with both composers and to have a Q&A with So Percussion before hearing them play an UNBELIEVABLE concert! It was an amazing day for the UofM Percussion Studio and we are looking forward to taking that energy to our concert on March 20, 2016 in the Great Hall at University College as well as to our studio recital on March 11, 2016 in Eva Clare Hall at 12:30pm.
