The RNCM Day of Percussion is back with a bang (!) and we’d love for you to join us. Our internationally renowned artists will present a day filled with exciting and informative sessions to inspire both new and experienced players alike. Learn about playing technique, gain industry insight, and hear some incredible performances from masters of their craft across a broad range of percussion styles.
This year’s outstanding line-up includes soloists and session players who’ve worked with BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, AskoSchönberg Ensemble, Choeur de Radio France, BBC Symphony Orchestra, John Williams and Paul McCartney to name a few.
We’re delighted to welcome Yamaha Marimba Artist Calum Huggan, contemporary percussionist and composer Emil Kuyumcuyan, timpanist John Chimes and percussionist Gary Kettel who all make their debut appearances at this year’s event as we also welcome back Dutch snare drum supremo Peter Vulperhorst.
Legends in the Manchester music scene, Latin Band Apitos (led by Dave Hassall) round off the festivities with a sensational performance of original arrangements and compositions to mark their 40th Anniversary.
In between sessions, visit our expansive trade exhibition throughout the day where you can try out instruments and pick up new accessories.
We’re thrilled to host this popular day once again, and we can’t wait to see you there!
