A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity
The Western Washington University Percussion Ensemble has been invited to perform at the 2024 Edeta Arts International Percussion Festival in Lliria, Spain, a UNESCO Creative City Of Music. Held in the small, yet vibrant town of Llíria, just north of Valencia, this international event will give festival goers numerous opportunities to perform music for the public while also exploring the many sights, sounds, and tastes of a beautiful and historic region of Spain. The festival will culminate with the world premiere of Michael Udow’s "Impressions of Llíria," of which WWU students and alumni will play an essential role. It is an honor for the WWU Percussion Ensemble to be invited to participate in such an exciting and culturally enriching event, and we appreciate your help in making the experience possible!
Who We Are
Western Washington University’s Percussion Ensemble is a uniquely collaborative, welcoming, and supportive group. As a non-audition ensemble, it isn’t solely made up of music majors. Musicians come from all over campus, and from different focuses within the music department to share a space for music making. The environment that is created from this inclusivity is one that focuses on community with a joint effort to make beautiful music. We push each other, rely on each other, and support each other with one common goal: to create something that we can all be proud of.
