Juniata Music Department: Percussion

The JC percussion program is a very innovative experience, involving performance in settings such as percussion-only ensemble pieces, traditional concert band, orchestra, and jazz ensemble settings, and also more cutting-edge, trendsetting experiences such as 2006's/2016's Impressions of Magnetic Resonance (a 12-minute surround sound, near-darkness performance for 11 percussionists), the very memorable and effective 2007/2013 "Haunted Hall" in which the ensemble physically played our performance hall, and the very innovative "Steely Pan and the PVC's" group, in which we play standard Caribbean steel drum pieces on large tubes. We've also recently performed such standard works as "Bonham," "Three Brothers," "Crescendo," "Ku-Ka-Ilimoku," "Streams," "Taiko," "Sabre Dance," "Samba Macabre," "A La Samba," "A La Nanigo," "Stubernic," "Portico," "African Welcome Piece," "Troika," "Tusk," "Oh, Beautiful" (with our Women's Chamber Choir), "Yobel," and a series of works with guest composer/conductor Phil Faini.
