Dame Evelyn Glennie

Any drummer or percussionist who is serious about their craft should be a member of PAS. It opens doors to an arena of musical sounds, music making, musical instruments, and fellow musicians with a passion for musical drumming.

Vic Firth

The Percussive Arts Society has been an integral part of my life since 1993. I've benefited as a student, performer, and educator in countless ways. I've served on the Drum Set Committee and currently the University Pedagogy Committee and appreciate the opportunity to be part of the growth of our art. Young percussionists, there's nothing in your percussive life that'll compare to attending your first PASIC!
