OU Percussion Press

2019 Composition Contest

We are accepting submissions now for the 2019 OU Percussion Press Composition Contest! See the Composition Contest page for more details.

The OU Percussion Press features works commissioned by the OU Percussion Ensemble Commissioning Series over the past three decades as well as arrangements of Christmas music, classical works, and ragtime. The Press was created to fill the need for publication and distribution of new, high-quality pieces for the percussion ensemble. Since its inception in 1983, the OU Percussion Ensemble Commissioning Series and OU Percussion Press have been integral to the creation of some of the most popular, timeless masterworks for the medium. Pieces by David Maslanka, Raymond Helble, Eric Ewazen, and others have become standards in the percussion ensemble repertoire and continue to be performed and studied by students across the nation. The OU Percussion Press catalog currently features 43 works, with more works to be added as the Commissioning Series continues to produce innovative new music.

OU Percussion Press pieces are available for purchase through C. Alan Publications at the link below.
