On Saturday, 9/26, the percussion section traveled to Cesar Chavez High School in Laveen to perform at the Arizona Percussive Arts Society Fall Day of Percussion. They were adjudicated by several judges, who evaluated different areas of technical accuracy, musicianship, presentation, and general effect. They looked great, and played extremely well. At the awards ceremony, they were among the 5 schools who received an Excellent rating, the highest ratings given in their division!

Later in the day, Alex Poole performed a solo for a judge in the ‘Solo and Ensemble’ portion of the event, and also received an Excellent rating.
Congratulations to our Marching Husky percussionists for representing Hamilton so well!
