Eastman Percussion Festival

The Eastman Percussion Festival will not run in 2022, but is planned to return in Summer 2023. We hope you’ll join us next year!

Michael Burritt and Ivan Trevino, directors

The Eastman Percussion Festival is a five-day seminar organized by international performing artists and composers Michael Burritt and Ivan Trevino. Designed for high school and collegiate percussionists, the festival will offer guest presentations, masterclasses, and seminars on a variety of topics, including musicianship, technique, practice habits and learning skills, interpretation and expression, as well as sessions on composing, music business, and performance anxiety.

“The personal engagement, relevant lecture topics, and in-depth approach to music beyond the mere occupation side of it deepened my connection with it in new and powerful ways.” – 2020 participant
