Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine praised the McCormick Percussion Group's albums for having "spellbinding virtuosity and limpid eloquence," and by Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review for having "music that engrosses as it transcends boundaries." Robert McCormick is a former member of the Harry Partch Ensemble and recipient of several notable awards including the 2006 Music Educator of the Year, the 2007 Keystone Percussion Composition Grand Prize Winner, the 2010 recipient of the Jerome Krivanek Distinguished University Teacher Awards, and is the winner of several Global Music Awards.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The McCormick Percussion Group puts out a steady stream of percussion-centric releases. Many of them contain interesting instrumentation, techniques, and musicality. Chris Hermann's Plot is an example of where the score itself, graphically notated, is probably more exciting than the sounds chosen by the performer. Johanna Beyer's Percussion is five movements that are historically important for the genre.
