About Cameron Leach

American percussionist Cameron Leach is a bold performer recognized for his expressive virtuosity, musical athleticism, and daring interpretations. An engaging and thoughtful soloist, Leach has concertized across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. He has appeared at some of the world’s finest institutions, including the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Royal Northern College of Music, Sibelius Academy, and the Norwegian Academy of Music, and notable halls such as the Lila Cockrell Theater, Ohio Theatre, Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, and China’s National Centre for the Performing Arts. Leach is the winner of both the Percussive Arts Society International Solo Artist Competition and Yamaha Young Performing Artist Competition, and was awarded the prestigious Performer’s Certificate from the Eastman School of Music. Along with his active touring schedule, he regularly performs with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, and recently held a professorship at Kent State University’s Hugh A. Glauser School of Music. Leach is endorsed by Black Swamp Percussion, Beetle Percussion, Sabian Cymbals, and Malletech.

Highlights from the 2017-2018 season include the debut of his new electroacoustic solo show ELISION, a European Tour as Co-Principal of the World Percussion Group, the world premiere of Paul Lansky’s Metal Light for the Percussive Arts Society, and a performance of Jennifer Higdon’s Percussion Concerto with the Eastman Wind Ensemble. Additionally, he performed Peter Maxwell Davies’ seminal Eight Songs for a Mad King with Ensemble id, a Rochester, NY-based chamber collective. His latest project, the Leach | Peters Percussion Duo, debuted on the Eastman Summer Concert Series in July 2018.

Leach’s 2018-2019 season is marked by an array of solo appearances, guest artist engagements, and world premieres. Kicking off with a performance at China’s National Percussion Festival, Leach then embarks on recital and clinic tours of California, Florida, and the Midwest. In March 2019, Leach will give the world premiere of Dave Maric’s Spiel, a percussion concerto for wind ensemble and electronics commissioned for him by the Capital University Conservatory of Music. Following a week-long residency at Purdue University Fort Wayne, Leach will tour a recital program throughout the Pacific Northwest with Orphic Percussion, a California-based percussion quartet. To close out the season, Leach will serve on faculty at the MalletLab Summer Intensive in West Palm Beach, FL, spend a week in residence as the featured artist for the Space City New Music Festival in Houston, TX, and teach at the inaugural World Percussion Group Summer Academy in Las Vegas, NV. Looking ahead, Leach will make his concerto debut with the Grammy-nominated Dallas Winds in January 2020, and premiere a new percussion concerto by Adam Roberts with the New Albany Symphony Orchestra during the 2020-2021 season.
