Cavalier Percussion Staff Assemble Diverse Talent
Brian Tinkel, the Director of Percussion Studies at Mars Hill College in North Carolina, will join The Cavaliers percussion staff in 2008 to work in collaboration with percussion caption head Jim Ancona and percussion designers/arrangers Jim Casella and Erik Johnson. Tinkel enjoys a career that draws on his background in teaching, as well as performance as a chamber musician, soloist and orchestral player.
