Owensboro High School’s Percussion Ensemble has been selected to perform at the 2016 Kentucky Music Education Association Conference in Louisville, KY at the Louisville Convention Center on Feb. 4 at 1:05 p.m. EST.
After a rigorous audition process, OHS students were chosen as one of only two percussion ensembles in the state to perform during this prestigious event. Under the direction of Aaron Klausing, students will perform some of the most advanced and technical ensemble compositions at the conference.
“We found out last July that we were selected for the conference. With the high level of talented students in our band program, I knew right then I wanted to program some really challenging music for the ensemble. The kids have responded to the challenge, playing at levels they never thought was possible,” said Aaron Klausing, percussion ensemble director.
If you can’t attend the KMEA conference, you can still watch the Owensboro High School Percussion Ensemble in action. The group will perform their program for parents, friends and the community on Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. in the Owensboro High School auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public. Those wanting to catch the OHS Percussion Ensemble in Louisville will need a ticket for access to concerts in the 200 level. Concert tickets are available at the KMEA registration desk in the Bridgeside Lobby.
