Indoor Percussion


The Indoor Percussion Ensemble is made up of students in grades 7-12 who attend WHS, WMS, and GCIT who play percussion instruments and occasionally color guard. Students in 7th and 8th grade are eligible to participate in the indoor percussion ensemble if they agree to join the Marching Braves the following school year. Over the years this group has numerous state and regional awards and like marching band, combines the art of performing percussion repertoire with aspects of theater and storytelling. The Indoor Percussion Ensemble begins rehearsals in January and offers many performance opportunities throughout New Jersey and surrounding states from February through May.
