The Percussion Ensemble provides percussionists with the opportunity to learn techniques and literature through rehearsal and performance in a chamber setting. The literature is selected from the best available compositions for percussion. The ensemble performs both with and without a conductor. Recent concerts have included such works as: John Cage's "Credo in US", "The Wonderful Widow of 18 Springs", and Cage and Lou Harrison's "Double Music"; Stewart Copland's "The Gene Pool", Christopher Rouse's pieces: "Ku-Ka-Illimoku" and "Ogoun Badagris"; Minoru Miki, "Marimba Spiritual"; and Thom Hasenpflug, "Bicksa"
