About Percussion on the Greens

It will feature a plethora of interesting combinations of traditional and ethnic percussion instruments all orchestrated to challenge one’s imagination of different percussive timbres. The combination of instruments range from tuned percussion (concert bells, xylophone, vibraphone, marimbas, chimes and timpani) to battery percussion (drums, and auxillary percussion).

The audience will hear a variety of musical genres that feature rhythmic and melodic percussion pieces specifically composed for percussion ensemble.
