East Riding Senior Percussion Ensemble

The East Riding Senior Percussion Ensemble was formed in the early 1990s with the aim of providing regular ensemble provision for percussion players in the East Riding.

In 2010 the East Riding Schools’ Music moved into its new base, the Hexagon Music Centre in Beverley, and a generous donation by the Friends of the East Riding Youth Orchestras provided a fully equipped percussion studio.

This has given the group more opportunity to rehearse and perform together. It has also led to the formation of an Intermediate Percussion Ensemble for younger players. The Senior Percussion Ensemble is made up of eight very distinct personalities, working and playing together in a cohesive unit. These players are full of fun and enthusiasm, displaying a real sense of ownership in their ensemble.
