University of Manitoba Percussion Ensemble Winter 2018

Its going to be a heck of a semester for the University of Manitoba Percussion Ensemble. We have several exciting performances coming up!

Come see the U of M Percussion Ensemble as we perform in the Commons at The Forks on Sunday January 28, 2018 at 1pm for a pop concert as part of the WSO New Music Festival. We will be premiering three pieces by U of M student composers. Fascinating and eclectic works by Anatol Rennie, Chris Love and Nolan Hildebrand.

My percussion students will be performing solo and small ensemble works for marimba as part of the Millennium Library Concert Series on March 1, 2018 at 12pm downtown at the Millennium Library. This is an exciting opportunity for these students to show off their skills on the marimba as part of this wonderful chamber music series.

Join us this spring for our final On-Campus concert featuring Mike Kemp (principal timpanist of the WSO), Cam Denby (graduating student) and the return of the U of M Alumni Percussion Ensemble. March 25, 2017 at 7pm. Made up of graduates from the past 30 years this ensemble formed last year to perform at the Great Hall Farewell concert and they had so much fun that we’ve decided to have another go at it!
