Founded in 2016, The Spartanburg Philharmonic Percussion Ensemble is made up of longtime friends and colleagues. Some of the members have performed together for almost 30 years, beginning with their Spirit of Atlanta Drum and Bugle Corps days.

Currently, the core percussion section for the Spartanburg Philharmonic, Patrick Lowery, Kevin Maloney, Kevin Mavis, Adena McDaniel, Matthew McDaniel, and Veronica Weygandt make up the ensemble. When not on stage together, these percussionists perform throughout the Upstate of South Carolina and teach musicians of all ages.

The ensemble’s repertoire spans genres, historical periods, and timbres to bring exciting concerts of both melodic beauty and pulse-quickening rhythms. One audience member writes, “Having never been to this type of concert before, we had no idea what to expect. We were absolutely blown away by the amazing talent and expertise of this group.“
