Percussion Ensemble

The Hofstra University Percussion Ensemble is dedicated to the performance of classic percussion repertoire, world music and contemporary compositions. In addition to exposure to a variety of repertoire and styles, students work in the areas of ensemble rehearsal techniques, quality sound production, and technical and musical problem- solving. The group teaches many principles of music performance that can be used in any other ensemble.

Previous semesters' highlights included a master class by the New York Percussion Quartet and a performance by the Hofstra Percussion Ensemble featuring the music of Brazil.
