Drummers find downbeat at winter percussion premiere
All four Hillsboro high schools field indoor drumline units.
There was not a quiet corner to be found at McMinnville High School during the first competition of Northwest Association for the Performing Arts (NWAPA) winter percussion season March 5.
Hillsboro was well represented at last Saturday's kickoff event, with all four high schools entering ensembles in the competition.
Groups perform themed shows and are judged on their musicality, marching, technique and general effect.
A total of 18 middle school, high school and post-high school groups performed during the all-day competition.
Glencoe High School won the Scholastic A division; Century placed second; Liberty was eighth; and Hilhi placed tenth out of 11 groups in the division.
The next competition takes place Saturday, March 12, at Sherwood High School and will include 19 percussion groups and 22 Winterguard (flag) teams.
