What is the Percussion Ensemble?
The Percussion Ensemble consists of the marching percussion (also called battery) and front ensemble (also called pit) sections of a marching band. Indoor percussion marries elements of music performance, marching, and theater; thus, the activity is often referred to as Percussion Theater.
In the Fall, Percussion is part of the SHHS Marching Band, where they have consistently achieved high Percussion scores in SCSBOA competitions, including First Place at the SCSBOA Championships in 2011.
During 2nd Semester, the action moves indoors and the Percussion Ensemble competes in both the SC-PA and WGI circuits.
