The Portland Percussion Group was founded in the winter of 2011 as a means of bringing professional chamber percussion music to Portland and the surrounding region. The group strives to promote the standard repertoire for percussion quartet, and to create new works in the repertoire through collaborations and the commissioning of emerging composers. In recent years, the PPG has presented public concerts featuring the works of northwest composers and notable seminal works in the repertoire. To date the ensemble has commissioned a number of new works for percussion quartet and hopes to aid in the creation of further additions to the contemporary chamber percussion genre.
