BSP Percussion Ensemble Showcase

Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis, the 2020 Percussion Ensemble Showcase has been cancelled.

Snare Drum Solo Competition

However, in an effort to help students stay motivated (and keep practicing) during their mandatory time off, we've replaced the standard Showcase with a Snare Drum Solo competition!

The snare drum competition is open to both High School and College percussionists, with 1st and 2nd place prizes being awarded in each division.

special note: entry fees have also been waived to help encourage participation at all levels!

Smart phones and video software has made it convenient to record and submit a performance in the comfort of your own home.  So get creative, have fun and stay healthy!
