The National Percussion Festival

This spring, the University High School Percussion Ensemble will be performing at the prestitious Sandy Feldstein National Percussion Festival. Being invited to perform at this festival is one of the highest honors a high school music program can receive.

About our Percussion Ensemble

The Percussion Ensemble is a component of the comprehensive music education program at University High School. Our students are enrolled in one of three different levels of percussion studies and receive a high degree of one-on-one and small group instruction, as well as performing with larger ensembles like the wind ensemble, symphonic band, and marching band. A unique curriculum is individually developed for each student, designed to match their skills and to challenge them to grow and expand their abilities. Students have regular access to our fully equipped percussion studio and numerous opportunities for performance throughout the year. Overall, it's a great program that builds confidence, character, patience, cooperation, and work ethic in our young men and women.

About the Festival

The Sandy Feldstein National Percussion Festival is one of the components of the Music for All National Festival. Attending ensembles perform at the beautiful Warren Performing Arts Center in Indianapolis, Illinois. Throughout the Festival, the students will be exposed to classes and clinics with master educators and musicians of national renown. They will also have the opportunity to attend the Festival's opening session, social events, and gala banquet. Overall, the Music for All National Festival is an unparalleled educational opportunity for our students, and an unforgettable life experience.
