The Percussion Ensemble offers chamber music experiences for students at Fort Lewis College. The ensemble is open to all students through audition. Percussion studies majors are required to perform in the percussion ensemble. The ensemble performs traditional percussion ensemble literature, music of different cultures, and arrangements of jazz and pop tunes. Students also have the opportunity to solo in different ensemble settings. Percussionists that wish to gain more experience in keyboard percussion performance can also participate in the Mallet Keyboard Ensemble. This is a separate class that meets to focus on the performance of keyboard percussion instruments.
