Percussion Ensemble

Vicki Peterson Jenks, Percussion Ensemble Director

The energetic WYSO Percussion Ensemble has a longtime tradition of delighting enthusiastic audiences each season. All WYSO percussionists rehearse each Saturday morning before orchestra rehearsals. The Percussion Ensemble is required for all WYSO percussionists.

The Percussion Ensemble performs during regularly scheduled concerts and is also featured in the WYSO Percussion EXTRAVAGANZA! which is an annual spring event.

One of the highlights of the postponed concert was the premiere of 3 student compositions created under the mentorship of WYSO alumnus Jon D. Nelson.
