The Winter Percussion Program

Winter Percussion is a competitive drumming ensemble that incorporates drill movements similar to marching band and uses both marching and concert percussion instruments to perform in a gymnasium. In essence, it is a percussion-only marching unit, with a blend of theatrical elements. This activity is offered based on sufficient interest and enrollment.

It is an opportunity for percussionists to hone their drumline and front assemble skills in training from December to January and have a blast at competitions from February through April.
