Maraca2 Percussion Duo to Perform with McMurry Percussion Ensemble


Maraca2 Percussion Duo is performing a power-packed concert that features the McMurry University Percussion Ensemble for an exciting finale. McMurry University Music Department is proud to host the Great Britain based percussion duo for a three day residency that will include rehearsals, lessons, master class sessions, and a concert performance.

Inspired by the vision of an exciting showcase of percussive virtuosity, ‘Maraca2 Percussion Duo’ formed in 2004. Since then, the duo has received critical acclaim and has transpired into the UK’s most internationally established percussion duo. An eclectic blend of repertoire spanning over 200 years, from marimba arrangements of popular classics such as Chopin’s Fantaisie Impromptu in C Sharp Minor, to influences of Jazz, Funk and Pop, have taken Maraca2 extensively around the World, including South America, Caribbean, USA, Europe and a recital on the World’s biggest percussion stage, the ‘Percussive Arts Society International Convention’, 2009 in Indianapolis, USA (PASIC). 2010 has also seen Maraca2 appear, representing Great Britain at the International Marimba Festival and conference in Minneapolis, USA.

All events are free and open to the public.
