The 2021 Percussion Ensemble
The ACT Percussion Ensemble was formed in 2012 to meet the demand for places for percussion players in IMP system ensembles.
It contains about 20 members from years 7-12 in ACT Public Schools. Students need to audition in the round with the auditions held in Week 6, Term 4 (November). Students in the percussion ensemble may also be part of the Junior and Senior Concert Bands.
They perform specially arranged music for tuned and untuned percussion with students accessing a variety of instruments owned by the IMP.
The ensemble learns to play a range of musical styles and it is an opportunity for students to develop specialty percussion techniques.
Dates and times for rehearsals - 4.30 - 5.30 pm each Tuesday during School terms.
Director - Jacinta Dunlop
