Outdoor Percussion

June-November

The Outdoor Percussion Ensemble is an excellent opportunity for the percussion students to play their instruments while marching in the show. The drums are designed and tuned for maximum articulation and projection of sound, as marching activities are almost always outdoors on a football field or in large interior space such as the gym for pep-rallies. Articulation is paramount to producing a "clean" sound from all the drummers in the line. A marching percussion ensemble is frequently known as a drumline or battery.

  • Prerequisite: Competitive Audition. Equipment requirements.

  • Auditions: Held in June. 

  • Rehearsals: Begin in June. 

  • Performances and competitions: Begin in August and continue through early November. 

  • Cost: Students can expect to pay a fee for participation to cover certain expenses. 

  • Attendance: All out-of-school rehearsals and performances are required.
