TWO EVENTS! | Saturday, September 12th & 19th, 2015

Non-competitive drumline festival with world-class clinicians focused on groups of all sizes and ability levels!

Each group receives a performance slot, a 20-minute clinic, and then a private meeting for the director to visit with a clinician. No marching...just valuable input for each group as they prepare for the competitive marching season ahead. We hope you enjoy the Palen Percussion Preview!

In September, 2015, we will be hosting the event at two different sites. We will have our fifth-annual event held at Nixa HS in Nixa, MO on September 19th and we will have a brand new site at Deer Creek HS in Edmond, OK. on September 12th.

Don't miss this fantastic day of percussion education!
