The Asheville Symphony Youth Percussion Ensemble consists of large ensemble and smaller chamber groups. These ensembles perform a variety of literature thus providing the students with a comprehensive learning and performing experience.

While participation in the Concert Orchestra and Youth Philharmonic are separate and distinct, the percussion ensemble is the “laboratory” in which skills are learned and “applied.” Members of the percussion section are evaluated and selected for participation in the Youth Orchestra, Philharmonia, and the Percussion Ensemble as determined by the Director of Percussion.

Rehearses Monday in conjunction with the Concert Orchestra and Youth Philharmonic, 5:00 p.m. – 8:45 p.m.
