At Warwick DrumSoc, we aim to create thrilling, interactive, experiences for anyone wanting to explore both formal and informal percussion. We offer members opportunities to perform formal pieces as part of the percussion ensemble, experience Caribbean tradition through steel pans and hone their skills on the Drum Kit.
Over the past few years, we've performed with many other Warwick SU societies and ensembles and organised socials for all members to come along to.
