About the Augustana Percussion Ensemble

In November 2014, the Percussion Ensemble embarked on a journey to Indianapolis, Indiana, to perform at the Percussive Arts Societies International Convention. The invitation to perform at the Percussive Arts Societies International Convention is an extraordinary honor considering the 10% acceptance rate and the extremely competitive and rigorous nature of the selection. Only the finest percussion ensembles and soloists in the world are invited to perform. The annual attendance of the convention each year is more than 6,000.
