Junior Drumline

Feel the thrill of the game as part of the 20-member Junior Drumline. A drumline is an ensemble of percussionists typically found within a musical marching ensemble like a marching band or drum and bugle corps. However a drumline can be treated as its own musical entity, as well. Often these groups will perform at pep rallies and during organized sports events like football or basketball games. Pieces are intricately choreographed and players are highly skilled.
