The UToledo Percussion Ensemble is a chamber ensemble dedicated to the performance of works featuring percussion instruments exclusively or sometimes in combination with other instrumentalists. From classic composers like Cage, Harrison, Xenakis, Varese and others to modern-day works from composers like Reich, Gillingham, Rouse, Tower, Benson, and Masklanka, to transcriptions and arrangements of works by J.S. Bach and other baroque/classical composers the ensemble is dedicated to offering percussionists a broad survey of music from the seminal literature for percussion ensemble to contemporary pop, jazz, and world music offerings. The ensemble is usually comprised of 6 - 8 students and is often broken into smaller groups (2-4 players each) to focus on smaller chamber repertoire in addition to performing larger ensembles as a group, collectively. The ensemble is only open to percussion majors. Non-majors may only participate in percussion ensemble with the permission of the instructor and by audition. The UT percussion ensemble usually gives 1 concert per semester.
