MUSIC 3634 - Cornell Percussion Group

Fall, Spring. 1 credit. Letter grades only.

M. Sparhuber.

The Cornell Percussion Group explores and performs un-conducted chamber music of the rapidly expanding percussion repertoire.  The Group takes advantage of the stylistic and sonic breadth that the relatively young medium of percussion chamber music engenders, performing music that ranges from classics of the percussive canon from composers such as John Cage and Iannis Xenakis, to collaborations with composers on new repertoire.  Members of CPG will develop their percussive technique and collaborative musical skills through the study of a diverse array of un-conducted percussion chamber works and mixed chamber ensemble pieces. Prior experience with percussion instruments is required, and participants must meet with the instructor for a short audition before enrolling.
