The Orlando Youth Percussion Ensemble or the "OYPE" is our main percussion group. Our goal with this particular group was to promote concert, and chamber literature. Due to the nature of percussion music this ensemble often splits up into smaller groups. These smaller groups focus on making our members more versatile by having them perform a wide variety of percussion instrument. The "OYPE" is one of our more versatile ensembles, being able to perform a wide variety of pieces requiring vastly different instrumentation. The "OYPE" is under the direction of Justin Steger.
