Midwest Percussion Cooperative-Show at Romeoville October 10th
Filed under: — Dan Balash @ 1:06 pm

The Midwest Percussion Cooperative has been formed to concentrate on the development of percussion performance skills among junior high and high school-age individuals and ensembles, as well as independent ensembles. The purpose of the MPC is to create and foster a system of values, through ensemble participation, that will allow students to achieve excellence through teamwork while striving to reach their maximum potential. It is MPC’s intent that participants will not only grow musically, but develop and grow in self esteem, integrity, work ethic, teamwork and to develop a sense of accomplishment and pride.

MPC will host percussion contests, clinics, and festivals throughout the Midwest.

The group’s first event will be the Midwest Percussion Cooperative Fall Showcase, which will be held on October 10th at Romeoville High School. The Fall Showcase will allow the region’s high school marching percussion sections to gather for a competition and clinic during the fall marching band season. The groups will perform their fall shows in standstill. A clinic will follow the competition. In its inaugural season, the Fall Showcase adjudicator and clinician will be the accomplished percussion teacher and arranger, Bret Kuhn.
