GWENDOLYN BURGETT

Gwendolyn Burgett is currently associate professor of percussion at the Michigan State University College of Music. She regularly gives masterclasses at universities throughout the United States and abroad. She is a percussion faculty member for the Filarmónica Joven de Colombia and has been an instructor at the Interlochen Arts Camp since 2005. Gwendolyn Burgett began her musical career very early, studying piano and violin at the age of two. As a percussionist, she has maintained a career as an active solo, chamber, and orchestral musician. She has performed solo and chamber recitals throughout the United States, Asia, and South America. Her enthusiasm for new music has brought collaboration in consortia to commission new works from composers such as Alejandro Vinao, Peter Klatzow, Paul Lansky, Martin Bresnick, John Serry, and Roshanne Etezady. She is currently principal percussionist with the Lansing Symphony Orchestra. She has also performed with the Detroit Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, the Solisti New York Orchestra, the Grand Rapids Symphony, and the Traverse Symphony Orchestra. In January 2012 she was a recipient of the Michigan State University Teacher Scholar Award, and was the winner of the Keiko Abe Prize at the Second World Marimba competition in Okaya, Japan, and the top prizewinner at the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts’ ARTS competition. She has studied with world-renowned professors Robert van Sice, Keiko Abe, and John Beck.
