Happy March! It is a busy time for everyone. WGI is heating up and I am in Indy this week for the Music for All National Festival and Sandy Feldstein National Percussion Festival. The level of middle and high school percussion ensembles are amazing. I saw groups perform percussion ensemble pieces that were once played by college ensembles. I also had an opportunity to visit the PAS Rhythm Discovery Center. It is a must for any percussionist. Here are some articles to check out this weekend. Please let me know your recommendations.
