"The Mercury Rising experience has been a great one. By participating in the ensemble, our son has been able to play with professional musicians, gained experience playing instruments he never would have gotten through his school music department, and been challenged with pieces and parts that have raised his skill level and allowed him to audition, and make, the highest level band at his school.

He looks forward to another year in the group, and we as his parents, look forward to a unique concert at the end of the program."

Testimonials

"My son Daniel has participated in the Mercury Rising Percussion Ensemble for three years. Joanna Huling's teaching brings out the best in students of all ages and abilities as well as encouraging them to continue playing in school. Daniel was also able to spend time with friends who had similar interests.

The finale of the summer was a fun concert that everyone including parents enjoyed."
