Encore! Indoor Percussion

Who are we?

The Encore! Indoor Percussion Ensemble, our indoor drumline, is open to any Souderton Area High School student who participated in the Big Red Marching Band in the same year.

The drumline is a branch ensemble of the marching band. Prior percussion experience is not necessary, though there are placement tryouts and students interested in playing drums or cymbals need to have a basic understanding of marching while performing music.

The ensemble performs several competitions and exhibitions throughout the winter and spring seasons. 

Our Schedule

Our indoor groups compete on the Tournament of Bands/Tournament Indoor Association (TIA) circuit. For more information, visit the TIA site.

The indoor competitive season usually runs from November through the first weekend in May. Competitions take place on several Saturdays, usually beginning in late January.
