Mason Percussion GroupFrom wine glasses to marimbas, these outstanding young musicians from the School of Music at George Mason University will present an exciting program of crowd-pleasing music for percussion under the direction of John Kilkenny.

The program will include works by Viet Cuong, Alejandro Vinao, and Ivan Trevino, among others. In addition to serving as GMU’s Director of Percussion Studies and Associate Director of Concert Bands, Director John Kilkenny also serves as faculty member and artistic director of the Sewanee Summer Music Festival.

In 2016 Mason Percussion performed at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention and the New York State Music Educators Conference, and has previously appeared at the Virginia Music Educators Conference, the Western International Band Conference, and the John F.
