Andrea Venet, director
The University of North
Florida Percussion Ensemble, directed by Dr. Andrea Venet, performs a varied
spectrum of repertoire that includes contemporary chamber music, new
compositions, commissions, modern arrangements, world music, and consistently
gives world premieres of new works. The ensemble took second place in the
Chamber Percussion Competition at the 2019 Percussive Arts Society
International (PASIC), competing against 18 recognized programs from around the
country. As active performers on and off-campus, the ensemble regularly
collaborates with other UNF ensembles and has an extensive presence within the
School of Music. The percussion ensemble, made up of graduate and undergraduate
percussion majors, focuses on chamber music performance and regularly hosts
world-renowned guest artists every year, including Michael Burritt, Escape Ten,
The Big Trouble, Line Upon Line and Valerie Naranjo.
