Percussion Ensemble

The Mississippi Valley State University Percussion Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Benjamin Arnold, is a chamber music ensemble featuring works written or arranged specifically for percussion. Repertoire includes historical works by composers such as John Cage, Steve Reich, and Lou Harrison in addition to contemporary works for percussion. The ensemble also performs percussion music from various non-Western traditions. The majority of the performers in the ensemble are percussion majors however; anyone interested may participate on an audition basis.
