Whether performing nationally as a marimba/vibraphone soloist or a chamber musician, conducting percussion clinics, composing for a range of soloists and ensembles around the world or teaching at the university level, Nathan Daughtrey (b. 1975) is a musical chameleon who uses his wide-ranging talents to adapt comfortably to a variety of environments.
As a performing artist and clinician for Yamaha and Vic Firth, Dr. Daughtrey has performed and conducted master classes and clinics in concert halls and at universities throughout the United States and across three continents. He has two solo marimba CDs to his credit – Spiral Passages, which features premiere recordings of David Gillingham’s “Gate to Heaven” and David J. Long’s “Concerto for Marimba;” and The Yuletide Marimba, which showcases Daughtrey’s solo and marimba quartet arrangements of 13 Christmas favorites. Also active as a collaborative artist, he has performed and recorded in chamber settings with composers Michael Udow and Daniel McCarthy, saxophonists Susan Fancher and Steven Stusek, bassoonist Michael Burns, clarinetist Christina Giacona, and the Virginia Beach Percussion Quartet, Trommel Percussion Group and Philidor Percussion Group.
According to leading wind band conductors and clinicians Ray Cramer and Peter Boonshaft, Dr. Daughtrey’s compositions are “fresh, beautifully scored journeys through dramatic textures” that feature “powerful tensions, velvety textures, lamenting colors and driving vigor.” With over fifty publications for concert band, percussion ensemble, chamber ensembles, and soloists as well as an ever-growing number of commissions, his works have been performed at national and international conferences. Performance venues include Percussive Arts Society International Convention, Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic, Bands of America National Percussion Festival, Asian Symphonic Band Competition (Bangkok, Thailand), and the International Music Conference (Beijing, China). Daughtrey is the only composer in the history of the Percussive Arts Society Composition Contest to procure both 2nd and 3rd place in the same year with his percussion ensemble works “Limerick Daydreams” and “Adaptation.” Additionally, his band pieces “Downtown Dash” and “Limerick Daydreams” have been featured in two volumes of GIA Publications’ “Teaching Music Through Performance in Band.” He has received annual awards from ASCAP since 2007. His eagerly awaited “Concerto for Vibraphone” is now available from C. Alan Publications in versions for percussion ensemble, wind ensemble, orchestra, chamber winds, and piano reduction.
As an educator, Dr. Daughtrey served as a Visiting Lecturer of Percussion for three years at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where he taught applied percussion and conducted the Percussion Ensemble. He also served as a sabbatical replacement at the University of Oklahoma, where he taught undergraduate and graduate percussion students and conducted the world-renowned OU Percussion Orchestra. Dr. Daughtrey is currently a Visiting Lecturer of Percussion and Music Composition at High Point University (NC), where he teaches applied lessons, directs the percussion ensemble and works in collaboration with the School of Communication and Department of Dance.
When not performing, composing or teaching, Dr. Daughtrey can be found running and biking the trails and greenways in his hometown of Greensboro, NC.

The mission of the Mid-Missouri Percussion Arts Trophy competition is to further the appreciation and development of percussion arts by providing excellent players with the opportunity to compete with other excellent players, and to have their work critiqued by world-class percussion performers. It is also the desire of the MMPAT administration to provide, at each yearly event, a concert given by a major performer.
