The UMBC Percussion Ensemble
Tom Goldstein, Director

The UMBC Percussion Ensemble is a dedicated performing group of advanced percussion students.

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County Percussion Ensemble, directed by Tom Goldstein, is adventurous in its programming, with a repertoire that includes graphic-notation pieces, improvisational works, and theater, as well as works by important early percussion composers, such as John Cage, Carlos Chavez, and Alan Hovhaness. The ensemble has premiered many pieces and established a tradition of performing works by UMBC's faculty and student composers, who include members of the group. It often performs at outside universities and has collaborated with visual artists at local galleries. It has also appeared at Artscape, Baltimore's highly acclaimed annual three-day arts festival.
