2019 UMD Percussion Honor Festival

We had a great Festival!


PERCUSSIONISTS UNITE!  Come spend a day with the UMD percussion faculty and students, where we will present a FREE one-day percussion workshop for select high school students.  We will offer hands-on clinics throughout the day as well as rehearsals for a collaborative performance WITH YOU that evening.

High School Band Directors, we are asking you to nominate up to 3 of your best percussionists to attend the workshop.  You should come too!  There is no cost associated with attending the workshop. 

Students may audition to play a solo on the festival concert.  Interested students should prepare a concert solo work and up to 3 soloists will be chosen to perform their piece that evening.  Playing a solo is not required to attend the festival.
