The New Jersey Percussion Ensemble, in residence at William Paterson University, has been a driving force in New Jersey for the performance of new music for five decades. Founded in 1968 by Raymond Des Roches, a professor of music who retired in 2002, the ensemble, today comprised mostly of William Paterson faculty and alumni, has commissioned, premiered, and performed numerous works written for percussion, and has appeared throughout the United States and Europe. A 50th anniversary concert on February 5 continued that tradition, as the ensemble presented world premieres and debuted its latest recording, New Jersey Percussion Ensemble at 50, Volume 1: A Volume of Concertos by Peter Jarvis and Payton MacDonald.
