Diamondback Article

There was a very nice article yesterday in the Diamondback, the on-campus newspaper at UMD-College Park, about the UMD Percussion Ensemble and our work during the pandemic.

“The whole ensemble — save two students who Zoomed into the rehearsal from their homes — was physically present. The voices of different members popcorned around the room, trying to solve this little problem in timing or that little hiccup on a syllable. No one directed; Hinkle was facilitating the conversation, but not dictating it. . .This kind of collaborative problem-solving attitude is a trademark attitude of percussion players, Hinkle said.”
