Conservatory Percussion Faculty Nick Petrella Performs in England

The Conservatory is pleased to note that Dr. Nick Petrella, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Percussion, recently returned from the UK where he was invited to coach a performance of Xenakis’ Persephassa at the CBSO Centre. It was a joint collaboration between percussionists from the Birmingham Conservatoire and The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

The performance was a hit and the ensemble had five curtain calls from the packed house!   In addition to coaching, Dr. Petrella presented a series of master classes for the percussion studio at the Conservatoire.

Bravo!
