The PAS International Percussion Ensemble Competition is one of the most prestigious competitions in our medium. This past spring, high school percussion ensembles from all over the country (and some from other countries) submitted anonymous recordings and 3 winners were selected and invited to perform at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) held in Indianapolis, IN in November.
We are proud to announce that the L.V. Berkner HS Percussion Ensemble was selected as one of the three high school winners!
This honor is one of the HIGHEST achievements a high school percussion ensemble can attain! This is an international recognition! Our students, who are making Berkner HS and Richardson ISD HISTORY with this invitation, will perform a showcase concert at PASIC in November 2018 in front of thousands of convention attendees!
Additionally, the L.V. Berkner Percussion Ensemble submitted for a separate contest called “Black Swamp Percussion Ensemble Showcase”. They received 2nd place out of 31 high school entries!!!
