2019 Official DownBeat Percussion Open House

Sunday, May 19th 2019
12:00pm - 4:00pm
Onondaga Community College - Academic II Building

Admission is FREE!

What is the purpose of the Open House? The main purpose is to bring in as many young performers as possible and have a good time drumming together! We always have the most fun playing when we can share it with new people! The secondary purpose is that we are looking to recruit some new people for our performer roster! That is the main difference between our open house and one of our other normal clinics. Impress at this event and you could become a DownBeat Performer!!!

At its foundation, DownBeat Percussion is a community of percussionists who both love to play music and perform! We pride ourselves on being able to perform with the best in the world which takes commitment both on and off the stage (or football field, street, Hockey Rink, Basketball Court- we perform everywhere!).

DownBeat Percussion is hoping to help you continue on your path of becoming a better percussionist and performer as well as looking for the most talented and entertaining performers to add to our roster! We will be looking for your ability to learn notes before rehearsals, your skill sets as a percussionist, and your willingness to perform!

We look forward to meeting new people and growing our community of drummers across the state!

Audition material

The audition process is simple. We will all be drumming together during the afternoon, and in that time, members of Team DownBeat will be observing the full ensemble. Here are two of the many pieces we play as DownBeat Percussion. Practice along with the MP3 tracks and come prepared!
