The Tyrone indoor percussion ensemble performed at the Tournament of Indoor Association Atlantic Coast Championships this past weekend and placed fourth in their division with a total score of 85.60 in the preliminary round for percussion. The indoor color guard achieved a score of 71.07 and placed seventh in the first round of the preliminary round in their division.

Both groups performed their preliminary rounds on May 4th,2017. Neither group however was unable to gain a spot into their groups finals competition.

 “Both the Guard and the Percussion presented their best performances of their season at prelims. After an excellent performance, percussion was very hopeful that we would advance to finals. We were very disappointed that we did not make it to finals. However, all the students still had a great season and should be very proud of all their hard work and talent,” said Band Director David Hock.

After the competition in Wildwood, New Jersey, the 2017 indoor percussion and colorguard season is complete. The indoor percussion and colorguard groups had a successful competition season.

“The majority of Tyrone Percussion students never played a percussion instrument more than a year or two which is in contrast to many students in the other groups who have played for many years. Our students have picked up the instruments quickly and have performed exceptionally well. We are Tyrone Proud and we will keep improving and moving forward in the years to come,” said Hock.

Both groups hope to grow in size and are looking forward to performing in the 2018 Tournament of Indoor Association indoor season.
