The NMU Percussion Ensemble has a flexible rehearsal schedule that is made on a TBA basis. The ensemble is devoted primarily to the NMU Marching Band drumline during the fall semester and is a concert ensemble during the winter semester. This chamber ensemble performs a wide variety of music, including contemporary works, world music and standard literature for percussion ensemble. Traditionally, this ensemble performs a full concert during the month of April. The course number for Percussion Ensemble is MU118. If your class schedule is over 16 hours, however, you have the option of registering for MU 118A, which earns 0 credit hours and therefore will not increase the amount you will pay for tuition.
