Percussive Arts Society International Convention Reply

The Peabody Percussion Group, directed by Robert Van Sice, were winners of the Percussive Arts Society’s International Percussion Ensemble Competition. Each year, the winners—two high school ensembles and three college ensembles—are selected to perform showcase concerts at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC), which will be held this year in Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 10-13.

The Peabody group will perform in the morning of November 12, and later that day, Orlando Cotto (AD ’97)  will give a keyboard clinic/performance. Ji Hye Jung  (BM ’07) will perform in a showcase concert for new solo works for marimba and vibraphone at the convention on Nov. 13.
