Join the MD / DE PAS Chapter for our annual "Day of Percussion" hosted and sponsored by Towson University Department of Music and Dr. Michelle Humphreys. The day will be jam-packed with drumming goodness for percussionists and drummers of all types and experience levels. We'll have hands on activities for younger students, student performances, percussion ensembles, drum set artists, drum line performers and clinics to name a few!
We'll host our first ever Solo Snare Drum Competition for High School and College students. Information on the snare drum competition is available here.
Admission to the Day of Percussion is FREE; a donation of $10 for PAS members and $25 for non-PAS members (includes PAS membership fee at the "Guest Pass" Level) is suggested to help support our event. Our featured guest artist will be percussionist extraordinaire Casey Cangelosi, who will present a clinic and recital at the day and also serve as a guest judge for the solo snare drum competition!
