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. Long gone are the traditional ways in which music is conceived of, delivered, and performed.

Jeff Calissi and Matt Bronson seek new and creative programming to demonstrate music for percussion. 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.
