Guests with the Ensemble have included Steven Schick, David Samuels, Duo Vertigo, Karak Percussion, Alison Pratt, Chad Wackerman, Jess Ciampa, Andrew Gander and Timothy Constable.  The SCM Percussion Ensemble program at the 2017 Sydney Drum and Percussion Show will feature works by Westlake, Bryars, Lloyd, Zivkovic and Alfieri for mallet keyboards, drums and percussion.
