What is Indoor Percussion?
An indoor percussion ensemble or indoor drumline consists 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. Although most indoor percussion ensembles are affiliated with high schools, there are also many independent groups that draw participants from a large area.
The ensemble travels in the Salt Lake Valley and surrounding regions under the Intermountain Percussion Association and in collaboration with the Utah High School Activities Association to compete six times over the course of the season. The ensemble also has plans to tour to Denver and Southern California in the near future!
*Members earn .25 PE Credit for Marching Band. Additionally, students earn .25 Art/Elective Credit for the winter season!
