About Omaha Percussion Group: Founded in 2018, Omaha Percussion Group provides professional percussionists in Omaha the opportunity to perform together outside of their regular musical jobs. The ensemble’s repertoire showcases percussion ensemble music and chamber works featuring non-percussionists, as well as duo and solo percussion works. Personnel changes from project to project, with the goal of including as many local professionals as possible from varied percussion specializations. While professional percussionists are expected to be well-rounded and versatile in many percussive idioms, OPG’s members have additional specialized training in classical and contemporary percussion, non-Western traditions, and pop and electronic music. These diverse backgrounds enable the ensemble to perform an extraordinary range of repertoire.
OPG Members: Jason Domonkos, Spencer Jones, Tomm Roland, Scott Shinbara
