Coastal Carolina University Percussion Ensemble

The Coastal Carolina University Percussion Ensemble, directed by Jesse Willis, associate professor in the Department of Music, performs an eclectic array of music for percussion instruments. With dozens of different instruments on the stage at each concert, the sonic possibilities are endless. The ensemble’s repertoire includes historic works of the 20th century by John Cage, Edgard Varese and Steve Reich, plus recent works by composers such as David Maslanka, David Gillingham, Tobias Borgstrom and John Psathas. The CCU Percussion Ensemble has been featured at the South Carolina Percussive Arts Society Day of Percussion. This event will be presented November 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Wheelwright Auditorium on the main campus.
