Chix with Stix Percussion Group

Chix with Stix

Chix with Stix brings together a group of female percussionists who express their musicianship through the performance of new and traditional percussion ensemble repertoire. They have taken on roles as performers, mentors and educators as they strive to bring this genre of music to a wider audience. They are keenly aware of the value in providing a strong role model for today’s young percussionists.

Since their debut performance in January 2004, Chix with Stix has been entertaining and educating Georgia audiences. The musicians, Lisa Angert Morris, Lisa Gillespie, Karen Hunt, Olivia Kieffer, and Courtney McDonald have a combined 50 plus years of freelance experience throughout the Southeast.

Chix with Stix has performed at Reinhardt College, the Georgia Percussive Arts Society Day of Percussion, Jacksonville State University, the Big Canoe July 4th Celebration and were invited soloists with the Atlanta Concert Band.

In the 2006-2007 season, Chix with Stix were featured with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, took part in a Percussion Extravaganza Concert in Gainesville, GA and returned to Reinhardt College, and performed a concert at Georgia College and State University. As well as being active performers and educators, Chix with Stix includes a licensed psychotherapist, an elementary music teacher, and a small business owner.

“At the conclusion of the concert at the Falany Performing Arts Center, the audience immediately rose to their feet in a loud ovation. The experience was not only musically exhilarating, it seemed to involve everyone in the audience.”
- Ric Sanchez, Reinhardt College

"These women will surprise the audience with the musicality and uniqueness of their sounds.”
- The Atlanta Journal and Constitution
