Winter Percussion is a separate opportunity for the percussionist in the marching band and concert wind ensemble. This is a competitive group that happens in January through April. Students prepare a show that is evaluated by a panel of expert judges. In doing so, they learn teamwork, leadership, musicianship, and physical skills.
The ensemble is made up of all percussion instruments and learns choreography along with their show music. Each year’s show has a different theme with which the students can engage.
Members of the Winter Percussion Ensemble enjoy the opportunity to work with experienced, highly skilled coaches who specialize in percussion. Students enjoy the performance opportunities. Students build their ability to focus on goals, strategize ways to achieve these goals, and celebrate the success!
