Mantra Youth Percussion

Established in 2014, our tuition-free youth ensemble offers underrepresented students unique percussion music education and high-level performance opportunities, giving students the tools to realize their own potential, and fostering artistic excellence and inclusiveness.

MYP focuses exclusively on performing and commissioning music by living composers. The group has performed at Carnegie Hall, National Sawdust, Juilliard, NYU, The New Music Gathering, Princeton Unruly Sounds Festival, the NJ Day of Percussion, the Cell, Roulette, MYCincinnati, Times Square, the Necessary Noise Festival, and on the Make Music NY Festival which the NY Times praised for their "ear-opening" performance.

Over these past seven years, MYP has either commissioned or premiered new works by more than 25 living composers.
