RixStix Percussion Group

Whether you are looking at percussion study as a career or hobby, we encourage you to audition for our ensembles! You'll enjoy multiple performance opportunities, a full complement of instruments, and the newly added percussion suite, which includes individual practice facilities for timpani, drum set, electronic percussion, multiple percussion, and keyboards.

RixStix Percussion Ensemble

The Percussion Ensemble performs music from all style periods and genres for as few as two players up to the full ensemble. In addition to concerts, workshops are often scheduled for area school districts including a biennial "Concert from the Hart" for elementary school children, a concert combining all components of the RixStix Percussion Group. Concurrent enrollment in percussion lessons is encouraged but not required. No audition is required.

RixStix Drumline

The Rix Stix Drumline is the official "Academic Society" on campus for rudimental percussionists. Members of the group receive instruction on playing technique and are encouraged to develop a variety of drumming skills. Membership is open to all students, faculty, and family members of faculty on campus, as well as to students enrolled in the local public school system. No audition is required.
