Using traditional and non-traditional instruments and compositions, the Percussion Ensemble affords KSU percussionists the opportunity to explore repertoire written chiefly for percussion instruments. The KSU Percussion Ensemble is directed by John Lawless, Senior Lecturer and Director of Percussion Studies.
The trumpet ensemble at KSU performs challenging repertoire each semester, regularly is featured at fundraising and gala KSU events, and has performed at the National Trumpet Competition and at the International Trumpet Guild Conference several times. The ensemble members play a diverse amount of repertoire ranging from newly composed works, to ensemble standards, to exciting orchestral and brass band arrangements. The ensemble has taken on many big challenges, and recently completed a video project for the 2021 National Trumpet Competition. Click below to view our submission for that year.
