YCHS Percussion Ensemble
Percussion Ensemble is composed of 7th-8th graders, which make up part of the 7th-12th Concert Band, 7th-12th Full Orchestra, and YC Drumline. This ensemble will rehearse with the High School Percussion Ensemble students and explore and perform a wide variety of percussion literature as well as continuing to expand individual technique. This performance group is a great way to enjoy music and the band and orchestra experience. This ensemble performs for various functions during the year including selected sport events, student assemblies, school concerts, festivals, and competitions. Required materials include: percussion (snare and mallet) instrument (purchase or rent from local music store), instrument accessories (practice pad, sticks, mallets, and ear plugs), and metronome. Prior experience is encouraged but not required.
