World Drumming Ensemble

…through drumming we hope to participate in the universal language of rhythm that cuts across all geographical and social borders…

Ensemble Logo

Students in this ensemble prepare and perform rhythms from percussion communities around the world. Many of these rhythms would be associated with communal dancing and/or singing, but we believe the rhythms are equally powerful and enthralling when performed by themselves.

The ensemble is open to all college students, regardless of major or experience [M. 5-6 & Th. 12-12:50] and provides consistent opportunities to engage in community outreach and touring.

Current Members: Sarah Bivona, Laura Blasena, Mike Brennan, Angie Haas, Elizabeth Johnson, Maggy Kozman, Tonia Kruczek, Zack Kusz, Katherine Schumacher, Isaac Snow, and Deborah Stenseng

Past performances:  Elementary Schools (Lester Park, Congdon Park, Homecroft, Piedmont, Grant Nettleton, Lowell, and Kenwood Edison, Holy Rosary, St. John's, St. Michael's), Congdon Creek Preschool,  Northwood's Children's Home (East & West campuses), Lincoln Park and Morgan Park Middle Schools, Raleigh and Northstar Academies, CHUM benefit, Annual performances for CSS's United for African Festival/Haitian Benefit/Culture Night/Admissions Open House(s)/Jam sessions in the Union, Benedictine Health Center & Westwood Community Home, and Duluth Battle of the Bands.
