iMpact! Percussion Ensemble is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for high-school percussionists to rehearse and perform exciting percussion ensemble repertoire as well as receive weekly coaching. Students will engage in a variety of works from keyboard ensembles, to mixed percussion ensembles, to smaller, non-conducted chamber works culminating each semester in a joint concert shared with the University of Michigan Percussion Ensemble.
