The Drexel Percussion Ensemble bring together the ethnic with the orchestral, and the ancient with the modern in percussion instrument applications. Students will learn to play traditional ethnic hand percussion instruments such as the tabla and dumbek, along with orchestral mallet instruments such as the marimba and vibraphone. Students will also incorporate modern percussion technology with Drexel's turntable and drum machine rig. The ensemble will also work on compositions and productions of its own creation.
Performance Scholarships are available for this ensemble. Scholarship auditions are generally held on Accepted Student's Weekends in April, but may be scheduled at any time by contacting Mark Beecher, firstname.lastname@example.org.
