The University of North Carolina at Greensboro Percussion Ensemble has been named a winner in the Percussive Arts Society’s (PAS) International Percussion Ensemble Competition. Annually, three university percussion ensembles are selected through a call-for-tapes competition, and the UNCG Percussion Ensemble was selected for one of these coveted positions. In the last four years, ensembles from the Eastman School of Music, Yale University, University of Kentucky, University of Texas, and Florida State University were some of the winners, so the UNCG Percussion Ensemble is in esteemed company. The UNCG Percussion Ensemble has been invited to perform a showcase concert at the 2015 Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) in San Antonio, TX, on Saturday, November 14, at 10:00a.m. For their showcase concert, the UNCG Percussion Ensemble will premiere four new works by Michael Burritt, Anna Meadors, Jason Treuting, and Jamie Whitmarsh.
The UNCG Percussion Ensemble will perform a PASIC Preview Concert on Monday evening, November 2, at 7:30p.m. in the UNCG School of Music Recital Hall.
