Would you like to sponsor a student for the Asheville Percussion Festival Intensive Program?

Asheville Percussion Festival Intensive Program Scholarship Fund

 If you want to support the Asheville Percussion Festival and wish that your donation go to a specific, educational purpose, consider sponsoring a student for The Intensive Program. This program is Monday though Friday of Festival week preceding the weekend events. We offer two tracks: World Percussion for Emerging Drummers ($385) and World Percussion for Intermediate/ Advanced Drummers ($435). Both include five hours of classes per day, Monday, June 26 - Thursday, June 29, and three hours of classes on Friday, June 30. The Intermediate/Advanced track will also include an hour of rehearsal per day with the Teaching Artists in preparation for and performing in a group piece at the Saturday evening concert. All students will study with these same world-renowned artists in small classes of not more than twenty-five students. Both tracks include Concert and Sound Meditation tickets.

The Emerging track is intended for students who are just beginning their journey in world percussion or have only been active in hand drumming for a year or two. They will benefit from an immersive environment that will kick-start and refine emerging skills.  The Intermediate/Advanced track is for serious students of percussion or professional musicians who want to deepen their skills and take their playing to the next level.

During the week, students will have access to the Collaboration Room to practice newly acquired skills. They will be exposed to the creative process and the powerful energy that grows over the course of the week among the masterful teaching artists as they create original compositions for the Master' Concert. Students will be welcomed into a diverse community that resonates and connects through Rhythm.

Olive Harvest
The Maalouf Family World Music Scholarship to the Asheville Percussion Festival Intensive Program is offered to a highly deserving student in the music department at the Greenville Fine Arts Center where Adam Maalouf pursued his musical education. This scholarship is sponsored by Olive Harvest and The Maalouf Family in memory of their beloved mother and grandmother, Saidi Jehe Maalouf who was a true cross-cultural ambassador between Lebanon and the United States. 

“We are committed to offering the highest quality Lebanese olive oil at a reasonable price, in an environment of happiness and respect to history, culture and humankind. This work is dedicated to my father, Yacoub Maalouf (1926-1997).  Without his unconditional love and dedication, Olive Harvest would not be possible today.”
