Rutgers Youth Percussion Ensemble auditions Jan. 7

RYPE brings the percussion section front and center. Percussion students have the opportunity to perform in a wide variety of musical settings. 

Repertoire includes traditionally performed literature and styles; arrangements and adaptations of well-known compositions; contemporary and cutting-edge music by emerging artists; world/roots music; novelty music, and performance art. Exposure to all of these styles, combined with the demands of performing chamber music, makes percussion ensemble a vital component of every percussionist’s music education.

2012 RYPE performances include the Randolph High School Percussion Festival, Rutgers Day, Jersey City Day of Percussion and Players Theatre in New York City. New this year: a series of workshops with master teachers from the New York-New Jersey area. 

An audition with ensemble director Peter James Saleh is required for acceptance. Call the Extension Division office at 732-932-8618 to schedule an audition.
