New this fall - Percussion Ensemble

In our world we are surrounded by musical sounds. Our homes contain many objects that make great musical instruments. A plastic bin might be a bass drum or a metal pot could be a bongo. The new Encore percussion ensemble will make music in unlikely ways, by using household items as well as real percussion instruments.

Previous music experience is not required. Each student will start with the basics and learn skills beneficial to other instruments and to further their current or future musical abilities. Come and join the fun for an interesting group experience.

The group will be led by Emily Bachert, a KU music major and student director of the Encore Advanced Ensemble. The tuition will be $45.00 per semester and space is limited. The group will meet on Friday - time to be announced soon.

Students must be enrolled in another group in order to be eligible for the percussion ensemble. (choir, orchestra, or band) Email or call 785-841-6308 for more information or to be added to the class roster.
