THE NEW PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE is the creation of Dick Schory, a uniquely talented young man to whom percussion has become a way of life (see cover). His group of twelve has been together almost two years.

Many divide their time between the Chicago Symphony and the top recording and broadcasting bands. Ed Metzenger, Reiners top timpanist, is considered a dean of the percussive art and started many in the group on their present careers. Dick Schory also appears with the Chicago Symphony, composes, conducts, has lecture tours, writes books, is advertising and educational director for Ludwig. The impressive thing ishe does these all at once.
