Directed by Thomas Burritt, the percussion ensembles are divided into four sub-ensembles, each focusing on a different genre of percussion music.
The UT Percussion Ensemble performs larger percussion works (works scored for five or more performers) while the UT Percussion Group performs chamber works scored for three to five performers. The UT Steel Pan Ensemble performs a diverse range of music from popular tunes, jazz styles and traditional Southern Caribbean music. The UT Marimba Band performs music that best represents the "golden age" of the marimba and xylophone that occurred primarily in the 1920's. Both the Steel Pan Ensemble and the Marimba Band perform on and off campus in efforts to serve the communities of the greater Central Texas area.
