The South Houston high school Indoor Percussion ensemble took part in the Texas Color Guard Circuit contest at Pasadena Memorial High School on Feb 4. The group performed their show titled “Never Too Young” in hopes of gaining insight from judges as to how they can perfect their show in time for the ultimate goal: State Championships in Reed Arena at Texas A&M. The group will now have been officially competing for its second consecutive year in the Circuit.

The indoor group is composed of new and returning members. Each member had to take part in try-outs to claim their respective spot in the ensemble. As it’s mainly percussion instruments performing, there was a limit to how many people were in each of the sections that marched such as: cymbals, tenor, snare, and bass drums.

The percussion ensemble placed eighth out of the twelve groups who competed. Despite the placement in the contest, the judges had good things to say. “One of the things the music judge appreciated was the musicality the guys had as a line.” Said Heather Hall, the percussion director. The four components that the ensembles are judged on is – musical effect, visual effect, and overall musicality. The group managed to gather momentum and captivate the attention of the audience throughout the performance. It was enough to gain a favorable view in the judges eyes, and divert the attention to the more technical and musical components of the show. The SoHo Indoor program will have its next upcoming show on Mar. 4 at Magnolia High School.
