CALDWELL, NJ - The music department at Caldwell University will be offering a program for youth percussionists, starting Feb. 18.

The program is open to middle and high school percussion students, and no audition is required. The youth students will get a chance to perform with Caldwell University students in the percussion program.

“I believe that the program is an excellent opportunity for percussionists to perform challenging literature with personalized instruction,” Director of Percussion Studies Alex Bocchino said. “It’s a good learning tool and working with the [University] students gives the younger kids a good opportunity to be mentored.”

“It’s fun to see the future being built right in front of you.”

The students in the program will perform a concert at the end of the semester. The program began as an offshoot of a summer program that the University also runs.

“We’ve had the chance to have Broadway and performing professionals visit with the kids in the past,” Bocchino said. “Billy Joel’s drummer, some of the cast of The Lion King and Rock of Ages… it’s a lot of fun.”

The Ensemble will run 7:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays for 10 sessions. The cost is $299. Sessions will held in Room 202 of the Visceglia Arts Building.

Interested parties should contact Bocchino at abocchino@caldwell.edu.
