Winter Percussion Ensemble is about to embark on their 2021 season!
“What is Winter Percussion or Indoor Percussion?” WGI definition:
Winter Guard Int’l (WGI) Percussion ensembles consist of the marching percussion (also called battery) and front ensemble (also called pit) sections of a marching band or drum corps. Indoor percussion marries elements of music performance, marching, and theater; thus, the activity is often referred to as percussion theater.
For a lot of students, it’s also a way of surviving after marching band season is over! Come check out and join the 2021 CHS Winter Percussion Ensemble (WPE). The CHS WPE is the 2019 reigning RMPA Scholastic A State Champion, and we are looking forward to another fantastic season performing. WPE is a tight knit group of students, parents and staff that share a passion for music, performance and community. WPE is also an opportunity for students/musicians to try instruments in the percussion realm. Do you play piano, bass guitar or drum set? We need you!!!
We will have a lot of fun! Please see the WPE upcoming schedule below:
