Lamont Percussion Ensemble performing at Showcase Lamont May 2012


The Lamont Percussion Ensemble is a very active group that performs four concerts per school year, one each quarter plus a ragtime concert in the lobby of the music school as the Lamont Ragtime Ensemble. We perform both traditional percussion ensemble music that has been important throughout the formation of percussion literature, and music from today's important composers, which includes a couple of commissions specifically written for our group. Our students have performed alongside today's leaders in percussion, including Third Coast Percussion, So Percussion and Gwendolyn Burgett Thrasher. The Lamont Percussion Ensemble is treated as a chamber group of musicians working together to perform great music in the beautiful venues at the University of Denver.
