2020 MSM Virtual Percussion Summit

Created with Sketch.

A five-day event July 20-24 bringing together percussionists from around the world for classes, round table discussions, concerts, and more.

2020 MSM Virtual Percussion Summit

The MSM Percussion Summit is a once in a lifetime event — With the performing arts and summer festivals currently on hold, this is a place for artists, students age 16 and older, as well as leading educators and performers, to gather during this historic “pause,” and renew our musical roots built on the multicultural history of our instrument.

The five-day event filled with revelations and discussions about the percussion world and beyond, is hosting more than 25 teaching sessions, five pertinent round tables, and will culminate in two concerts featuring MSM alumni and special guest artists and faculty.

The 2020 MSM Virtual Percussion Summit intends to draw together the global percussion community no matter the time zone, place of origin or time in life.

“While the world seems to have stalled, it is our time to review the bridges that can be built from the very foundations of the instruments we play, to the performers we are and can become.”
