Percussion Ensemble is an ensemble for percussionists in the Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra organization. The typical Percussion Ensemble student has had some private instruction and school ensemble experience, has good snare drum and mallet technique, and reads music well.
Percussion Ensemble consists of all BYSO percussionists who were placed at the Philharmonia or Youth Symphony level after auditioning. Percussion Ensemble students provide percussion as needed for these two orchestras in addition to practicing and performing in their own ensemble, where they focus on interesting and challenging percussion-only pieces. Past ensemble works performed include Cirone’s 4/4 for Four, Spears’s Polyphonies, and an arrangement of Rossini’s William Tell Overture.
