PHHS percussion group in state competition


"I'm absolutely looking to have a good time at state finals," Brosman said. "The kids are playing their hearts out and turning some heads in the audience at the same time."

Prior to the Indoor Percussion season, Brosman acknowledged that a change was needed in this year's format. Brosman switched the group to the Percussion Scholastic Class A division..

"We changed to the PSCA class for many reasons," Brosman said. "We lost rehearsal time in the high school gym before the season started and the band program had also been going through tough financial times as well. The concert class requires little to no gym time and a much lower operating cost to still be successful. We also felt that we had strong players that could easily adapt to a different season."

The music played by the Pendleton Heights Indoor Percussion ensemble was written by Jim Casella. "Joaquin on Sunshine" has a festive, soulful Afro-Cuban flavor, with a Latin rhythm section of drums, bass guitar, congas, bongos, and shekere. The front ensemble has the audience dancing in their seats to the sounds of the marimba, xylophone, and Glockenspiel.

"We didn't know at first if the music would work well for the ensemble, but we chose it because it sounded fun, challenging, and exciting to listen to," Brosman said. "As the students started learning the program it became something that everyone enjoyed playing and getting into, which made my job easier."

"I'm extremely proud of all the kids this season," Brosman added. "They've risen to the challenge of learning a bunch of new instruments and a new style of music."
