The Spring Percussion Summit is a full day of clinics, masterclasses, performances, and prizes dedicated to percussion and drumset. It is for students of all ages--elementary through college, and even adults. Students are invited to perform their solo or ensemble piece for one of our professionals and spend a few minutes working with them one-on-one. At the end of the day, a few outstanding soloists and ensembles will be recognized and awarded for their performance. The day ends in a thrilling concert by the Hastings College and UNK Percussion Ensembles.

Saturday, April 13th at Hastings College
