Committed to honoring the past and expanding the future of percussion music, Mantra Percussion brings to life new works for percussion by living composers, collaborates with artists from diverse genres and styles, and questions what it means to communicate music with percussion instruments. Mantra Percussion engages new audiences by challenging the standard concert format through evening-length events that look toward a grander artistic vision.

Mantra Percussion has been hailed by The New York Times as "finely polished...a fresh source of energy" and by TimeOut New York as "forward thinking"; the group was praised by The New Yorker and TimeOut New York for presenting one of the ten best classical performances of 2012.

The Northwest Percussion Festival brings together percussion ensembles from Washington, Oregon, and Idaho for a weekend of concerts and percussion clinics. Full schedule.
