    About the OU Percussion Press
    In 1977 the OU Percussion Orchestra and Ensemble embarked on a project that developed into a national model for the encouragement and development of new music for percussion ensemble. The OU Percussion Ensemble Commissioning Series regularly engages outstanding composers to write works for this medium. The Commissioning Series is responsible for the creation of some of today`s staples in the percussion ensemble repertoire.

    In 1983 the University of Oklahoma funded the establishment of the OU Percussion Press, a non-profit extension of the percussion area. Through the Percussion Press, the commissioning series compositions plus other works expressly written for the OU Percussion Orchestra and Ensembles have been made available for purchase and performance by the world`s leading percussion ensembles. The Percussion Press` catalog numbers more than 50 works, all published in a non-profit venture as a service to the profession.

    1. Just right!

      This is a pretty good arrangement that is really accessible due to the repetitiveness. I also like that the OU arranemgements can be played with a bass marimba instead of an actual 5 octave. So, if you don't have a 5 octave but do have a bass marimba, this and many of the other OU arrangements are perfect. This is also really fun to play due to the added zux and sound effects. on Nov 12th 2018
