Event Description
Northwest Percussion Festival

The Northwest Percussion Festival was founded in 1985 in an effort to give classical percussion ensembles from around the Northwest region a chance to perform for one another and exchange repertoire ideas. The weekend’s events will feature performances by 14 ensembles from Oregon, Washington, Idaho and California, in addition to the Friday evening concert with guest artist Nancy Zeltsman. The continued growth and success of the Northwest Percussion Festival is a tribute to the dedication and commitment of the regions percussion community, striving to advocate and advance the percussive arts.

Events will include performances, master classes, clinic and the opportunity to work with the guest artist. This festival is an opportunity like no other in the region for students to not only perform, but experience other ensembles perform a plethora of canonic works for percussion ensemble. Each year, the event includes nationally recognized guest artists and clinicians, in addition to an evening performance by the ensemble directors.

All concerts are free to attend and no tickets are required.  For further information contact the Willamette University Music Department at 503-370-6255.
