FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

PERCUSSIVE ARTS SOCIETY’S MARCHING PERCUSSION FESTIVAL PACKETS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR PASIC 2008 IN AUSTIN, TEXAS

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – February 1, 2008 – The Percussive Arts Society will host their annual indoor Marching Percussion Festival November 6 and 7, 2008 at the Austin Convention Center, in Austin, Texas. The festival takes place in conjunction with the 33rd Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC), the largest annual gathering of drummers and percussionists from around the world. PASIC consists of over 115 events on 13 stages and includes clinics, concerts and master classes in all areas of percussion.

The Marching Percussion Festival is known as one of the premiere marching festivals for presenting some of the most cutting-edge, contemporary marching percussion performances by high school and college marching individuals and percussion ensembles from across the country. The competition includes high school and college divisions in individual solo competition (snare, tenor, timpani and keyboard) and small ensemble (3-9 members), standstill and drum line.

The number of participants is limited and performance slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants are asked to submit materials quickly, as the last time the Marching Percussion Festival was held in Austin, Texas, festival capacity was reached months before the printed application deadline. Applications are currently available at www.pasic.org and will be accepted through September 14.
