  • Heralded by The Chicago Tribune for his "unfailing taste, technique and discipline," Glenn Kotche's eclectic performances and original compositions have explored the creative use of rhythm and space through various projects in percussion the past 18 years. Born in 1970 in Roselle, Illinois, Glenn graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Music in music performance from the prestigious University of Kentucky Percussion Program, studying under James Campbell.  Following graduation, his various stints with groups and ensembles have resulted in participation on over 80 albums to date, including three recorded solo works, the first two entitled Introducing and Next.  Glenn's third solo effort of original compositions, Mobile was released on Nonesuch Records in 2006.  Kotche was featured on the cover of the August 2007 issue of Modern Drummer magazine and can be seen performing on the 2006 Modern Drummer Festival DVD.
