World Percussion Ensemble
Welcome to the World Percussion Ensemble website! Here you will find information about upcoming dates and events. World Percussion Ensemble is an all percussion group that performs percussion music from all over the world! We play mainly instruments that are ethnic to regions of Africa, Cuba, etc. Members will learn proper technique, style, & practices common in percussion ensembles as well.
We are rehearsing a song called "Usiku Mwema", which comes from East Africa. We will be playing percussion with the WBO Choir during this song. Your child should have the sheet music for them to practice. If they do not have an instrument to practice on, they can pat on their lap. This ensemble does not require you to buy an instrument for your child, but if you are interested in buying a percussion instrument, please let me know.
Our first performance will be Wednesday December 9th at TMS at 7pm. Call time for your child will be 6:15pm that night. Also, there will be a dress rehearsal on Monday December 7th from 2:30p-4:00p. Both of these dates are REQUIRED. I will be sending another reminder when we get closer to the performance. I am excited for this new ensemble and I hope you and your child is too! We meet every Tuesday at WBO from 2:30p-4:00p in room 195.
Thanks for visiting! - Mr. Chris Komos, Director.
