Chamber Ensembles: Students at EWU are encouraged to explore and perform a wide variety of chamber music, ranging from classical masterpieces to contemporary compositions. Chamber groups regularly consist of string quartets, strings with piano, and strings with winds. Regular coaching times with faculty are scheduled on Wednesdays from 12-12:50 and 1:00-1:50. Other times are also available for group rehearsal and coachings. Chamber music performances are regularly presented on EWU recitals and convocations. EWU chamber groups also perform off campus for events such as Musicfest Northwest, house concerts and FOX Theater performances prior to Spokane Symphony Orchestra concerts.
Contemporary Ensemble: Contemporary Ensemble allows students the unique opportunity to investigate through performance, the stylistic practices of 20th and 21st century music. For more information, contact Kendall Feeney.
Percussion Ensemble: The percussion program at Eastern Washington University offers comprehensive instruction in classical/western percussion instruments and literature for keyboard percussion instruments (marimba, vibraphone, etc.), snare drum, timpani, and auxiliary percussion. The classical focus is on ensemble performance, solo literature, and orchestral excerpts. The percussion ensembles perform a diverse repertoire ranging from jazz and ethnic influenced pieces to more traditional classical compositions.
