The Winter Drumline is a competitive percussion ensemble comprised of instruments traditionally used during Marching Band seasons. This is NOT an extension of the Marching Band, and is a separate ensemble for the Spring. The group is open to all students with basic musical ability to advanced percussion skills.

 

Instrumentation:

The Winter Drumline includes marching snares, tenors, basses, and cymbals, marimbas, vibes, xylo, piano (synths), electric guitar, electric bass, all auxiliary percussion, latin percussion, drum set, samplers, and electric triggers.

 

Auditions & Rehearsals:

This ensemble holds auditions in early December, and begins rehearsals shortly after. Rehearsals are held after school, three days a week, and taught by the Winter Drumline coaching staff. Students can Register for 8th period Winter Marching Band and receive PE credit for this ensemble.

 

Competitions:

The group attends five (5) comps, plus Championships, on Saturdays starting in mid-February and ending in early April. Comps are held in high school gyms across Southern California.  Each show lasts from 4-6 minutes in length. Drumline shows are custom designed by the WDL staff.  Design elements include; custom thematic costumes, custom painted floor, backdrops, original/arranged music, backdrops, show specific “samples” and drill (formations.)

 

Uniforms:

Each WDL member will be measured and fitted with a custom uniform in early January. These uniforms are show specific and are designed with color, materials, texture and visual structure to go with and enhance the show theme.
