RCM Festival of Percussion

The annual RCM Festival of Percussion takes place in July and is a grand celebration of all things percussion, offering up a wide-range of entertaining and educational events.

Special guests have included top drummers Peter Erskine, Stewart Copeland, John Riley, Ralph Salmins, Gavin Harrison, Pete Lockett, Geoff Dugmore, Jim Kilpatrick and Matt Skelton, and acclaimed timpanists and orchestral percussionists such as Nick Would, Graham Johns, Matt Perry and Adrian Bending.

In addition, we regularly welcome the Percussion and Timpani sections from the BBC Symphony and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras, the Drum Corps from The Royal Marines, the O Duo percussion duo and the Anthony Kerr Jazz Trio.

The next Festival of Percussion takes place on Sunday 12 July 2015, for which we will be joined by legendary drummer Jojo Mayer. See full details at www.rcm.ac.uk/percfest
