Eastern Connecticut State University faculty percussion duo Confluence formed in 2017 with the understanding and recognition that concert audiences in the 21st century have changed and ways in which music for percussion is conceived of and performed are only limited by one’s imagination.

Jeff Calissi and Matt Bronson seek new and creative programming to demonstrate the vast landscape of the percussion canon. From arrangements and original works for mallet instruments to the numerous timbres of world percussion, Confluence is on a musical journey to define percussion repertoire for the modern-day audience.
