Lamont Percussion Ensemble

John Kinzie, Director

The Lamont Percussion Ensemble performs four concerts per school year, one each quarter plus a ragtime concert as the Lamont Ragtime Ensemble. We perform both traditional percussion ensemble music that has been important throughout the formation of percussion literature, as well as music from today's important composers, which includes 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.

Additional percussion ensembles at Lamont:

Ghanaian Drumming Ensemble
Lamont Steel Drum Ensemble
North Indian Classical Ensemble
Senegalese Drumming Ensemble
