"My first year with MRPE opened up my eyes into an experience in percussion ensemble that was not provided at my school. I learned how to play more instruments in those weeks than I had the past year. I even played a piece of paper! My experience with MRPE has been nothing but fantastic, and I highly recommend it."

"As a member of the Mercury Rising Percussion Ensemble for 2 years, as well as a student of Joanna Huling for 5 years, I can honestly say that MRPE has dramatically improved my skills as a percussionist while also introducing me to many new friends. The program is always fun, with plenty of laughs, has a wide variety of music, and increases skill in all percussion. I look forward to it every year and highly recommend it to all percussionists of all skill levels"
