For over a decade, Quey Percussion Duo (Gene Koshinski and Tim Broscious) has been pursuing a mission to bring their passion for music and the art of percussion to a broad audience. To establish their distinct musical voice, QPD strives to make their presentations as diverse as possible – highlighting their unique combination of classical training with their experience and interest in global and popular music. In addition to many national and international tours in Argentina, Canada, China, France, and Jordan; QPD has worked with art galleries, conventions (including 2 PASIC appearances), and chamber music series’. Their direct work with reputable composers such as John Luther Adams, Casey Cangelosi, Stuart Saunders Smith, David Macbride, Dave Hollinden, and Alejandro Vinao has also carved out a niche for the duo. The duo serves as Faculty Artists in Residence year-round at University of Minnesota Duluth and has just finished its eighth year in residence at the Performing Arts Institute Summer Music Festival. QPD is endorsed by Pearl/Adams, Sabian, Innovative Percussion, and Remo.
