Fishers Percussion

Fishers High School Percussion program offers a comprehensive and diverse musical offering.  In addition to the Advanced Percussion class, Fall Drumline, the Fishers percussion ensembles are consistent WGI State and National Finalists. They have won NINE Indiana Percussion Association State Championships. Our Concert World ensemble are 2022, 2019 & 2018 the WGI Scholastic Concert World Champions.

Percussion Ensemble offerings: 

The class ensemble meets during the normal school day. They prepare and perform music inclusive of classical, contemporary as well as music of many ethnic origins, Carribean, African Drumming, Japanese folk music and much more.  These ensemble classes present a fall and spring concert.  

The Winter Percussion ensemble meets from late December to late March and learns a competitive percussion piece to compete against other schools in Indiana. Winter Percussion is a critical component of student musician training, and it provides an opportunity for percussion members to perform in a manner that highlights their instruments. During the Winter Percussion season, students perform a show between 6 to 8 minutes in length that is performed at competitions both regionally and nationally.

  Connor Prairie

This is a great way to earn money for your marchers account. Check availability for specific dates directly with our liaison at conner.prairie.team@fishersband.org if you want to sign up to work. Volunteers must be 14 years or older. Adults will earn $12.00 per hour and Students will earn $10.00 per hour  (with 10% going to the general fund). Conner Prairie accounting cuts checks twice a month. Make sure that you always sign in and out for your shift, so that our treasurer can credit your student account correctly! Boosters can volunteer with or without their student, but if your band student volunteers as well, they must be 14 years old.

There will be a volunteer sign in /sign out clip board.  Please sign in and ensure your student’s name is listed also so that the correct account is credited.

Remember Volunteers need to be at least 14 years old in order to volunteer.  There are sometimes positions that require a liquor license and 21 years of age, but most of the time that is not the case.
