The Augustana Percussion Ensemble is a chamber group and performs music specifically written for the percussion ensemble from 1930 to the present, along with various transcriptions and arrangements of music never imagined for percussion.
Concerts present a diverse mix of musical styles — from light to serious to “out there” — and participants play traditional and non-traditional percussion instruments of all kinds.
The ensemble performs two large concerts on campus during the year, one in winter and one in spring. The 2018 spring concert will begin at 2 p.m. April 22 in the same location.
The ensemble is directed by Dr. Tony Oliver.
