Spartanburg Philharmonic Percussion Ensemble
Driving beats & colorful melodies
Friday, March 13, 2020 @ 10 AM
Presented by Tryon Concert Association
“Having never been to this type of concert before, we had no idea what to expect. We were absolutely blown away by the amazing talent and expertise of this group.”
From classic Brazilian dances to funk-inspired tunes and traditional Haitian drumming, this percussion ensemble entertains audiences with a blend of driving beats and colorful melodies. The ensemble employs drum sets, marimbas, shakers, beaters, and a slew of wild instruments for their exciting and engaging events. The Percussion Ensemble, founded in 2016, is made up of longtime friends and colleagues, some of whom have been playing together since their Atlanta drum and bugle corps days. The members currently form the core percussion section for the Spartanburg Philharmonic.
