Posted on 5/30/2012

Brian Nozny, assistant professor of music at Dickinson State University, was elected as the new president of the North Dakota Chapter of the Percussive Arts Society. He will remain president-elect for the rest of the 2012 year and will take over as president in January 2013.

The Percussive Arts Society is the world's largest percussion organization and is considered the central source for information and networking for percussionists and drummers of all ages. Established in 1961 as a non-profit, music service organization, PAC's mission is to promote percussion education, research, performance and appreciation throughout the world.

PAS is headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind., and includes Rhythm! Discovery Center, which contains rare and unusual percussion instruments and scores. Each year, PAS hosts the largest percussion convention in the world, the Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC), featuring top names in drumming and percussion. Now in its 35th year, PASIC features more than 115 concerts, clinics, master classes, labs, workshops, panels and presentations.
