EYSO offers a uniquely strong experience for percussionist of all ages and experience levels. For many EYSO percussionists, this is their first experience in a large symphony orchestra, particularly if they join at the Sinfonia level.
Beyond the intensive coaching they receive from Percussion Director Joe Beribak in their orchestra rehearsal, all EYSO percussionists are members of one of several Percussion Ensembles. In the Percussion Ensembles, students learn to expand and refine their percussion technique, while exploring challenging contemporary repertoire and the tremendous variety of experiences that being a percussionist can offer.
Percussion Ensembles are led by Joe Beribak.
