Palen Percussion Preview (Nixa, MO)
The Palen Percussion Preview is a non-competitive drumline festival with world-class clinicians focused on groups of all sizes and ability levels! Each group will receive a performance slot, a 20-minute clinic, and then a private meeting for the director to visit with the clinician.
There is no need to wear uniforms, do any movement, or play the whole show. This non-competitive event is about percussion education, supporting other groups, and identifying areas of strength and weakness as you prepare for the competitive fall season. Most groups perform a movement or two from their show. We encourage you to stick around to listen to other groups perform, and then learn from the comments and instruction given by the clinicians. We are also very excited to welcome back Missouri State University as the finale performance.
Entry fee is $150 per group. Deadline for entry is August 31st. There is only space for 20 groups, so act quickly to reserve your spot."
