Percussive Attack Camp will wrap up a week-long study of music at Northern Michigan University with a free public concert on Friday, Aug. 4. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. in Reynolds Recital Hall. Students from middle school age through adults will perform on marimbas, xylophones, bongos, timpani, cymbals, triangles, garbage cans and other percussion instruments. 

Percussive Attack Camp (PAC) is under the direction of Carrie Biolo, with the assistance and support of the NMU Department of Music. It was founded in 2010 by Biolo and Cindy Whitehouse and is "Marquette County’s premier music camp for burgeoning percussionists." 

PAC’s mission is to provide a milieu for the comprehensive study of sound and rhythm through the application of auditory percussive attacks on music. Biolo said key to the mission is intensive, performance-based instruction through deep immersion in a professional and engaging environment.
