Percussion Ensemble

Who would have thought that there would be a percussion ensemble in a Presbyterian church in the middle of rural Wisconsin?!  Well, we are happy to declare that Union Presbyterian Church offers a wonderful African Drum ensemble that doesn’t sound too shabby and is a lot of fun!

This ensemble is open to folks of all ages.  No prior training is necessary.  Our teacher, Sarah Bodell, teaches music at a local elementary school and is patient to work with our rhythmically-challenged group.  She studied West African drumming with a drummer from Ghana, and she constantly has a great supply of fun beats for us to work on.  We share our pieces in worship about every other month; and we perform as an ensemble, and sometimes we provide support for the choir.

Typically, we have practice on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 P.M. until 7:00 P.M. at our church.  If you are interested in joining us, contact us at unionpresmonroe@gmail.com. Come and check us out and join in the fun!
