    Percussion WGI and competition

    Post  eileenchow on Wed Feb 03, 2010 12:18 am

    will submit headlines later

    This is the big moment. Adrenaline and nerves rush through your body, as you prepare to start your show. As soon as you are signaled to begin, you launch into the routine that you have toiled endlessly to perfect, nerves gone in an instant as a rush of pride and excitement replaces your tension. That was the typical run-through of a Percussion competition, seen through the perspective of a Percussion member.
    On Feb 6 at Valencia High School, JVPR competed in an all day Southern California percussion Alliance (SCPA) show. VPR followed afterwards with their own SCPA Competition on Feb 13 at Chino Hills High School. VPR's competition highlight of this month was their Winter Guard International (WGI) Regional competition from Feb 20-21 at Rancho Cucamonga High School. The WGI Regional is a distinguished competition that features an immense gathering of numerous colorguard percussion ensembles all through southern California. VPR member Tim Boehr described the WGI Regional as a "great time to see how we stand among other groups of the same caliber before heading to [our competition in] Dayton."
    Paragraph including recap of competitions/ regional, how they did, what they scored, etc.
    JVPR proudly unveiled Open Line's show this year, entitled "Legacy", which exhibits the way things change and affect one another over time. The show for A Line was established around Asian themes that epitomized ideas of Confucius. JVPR member sophomore Alex Stevens described how "the shows themselves are beautifully written and are great presentations." This year, JVPR were seen showcasing their indoor show, "Legend". "Legend", which illustrates elements of destiny(?), was "pretty unique compared to all of our others shows" with "a lot more heavy electronic bits which adds so much to the overall effect of the show" explained __, Coleen Ju, VPR member.
    The dedicated members of JVPR and VPR devote a great majority of their time towards their practice schedules. According to Alex, "the drumlines prepare for a show months in advance" with "much of first semester [spent] perfecting the skills that we will use in the show." Weekly afterschool rehearsals are also combined with extra sectionals and individual practices. VPR hold practices on Mondays from 3:00-6:00, Wednesdays from 5:00-9:00, and occasional Saturday practices that range from 9:00-9:00 for battery drums(?) and 2:00-9:00 for pit drums(?). For each and every Percussion member, every single practice minute, every moment dedicated to practices are all pooled into polishing their techniques to top forms.
    Each Percussion member carried their own expectations and hopes to the competitions. According to senior VPR member Daniel Zaki, he had hoped to "place high [for Percussion], somewhere in the top three in the world" and to "set a new bar for Arcadia's World Class drumline." Coleen, who shared the same goals as Daniel, also "really hope to finally get top 3 this year" because "last year [they] were so close to placing in SCPA." Alex had hoped to " grow as a performer and be able to perfect more of the miniscule details that divide the good from the great."
    Percussion has started off strong into a brand new season by setting the expectation bar even higher than before. Through their rigorous practices and unwavering dedication to their performing arts, Percussion is truly hitting all the right beats as they ease into their competition season.

    Eileen! hahaha, I think I forgot to clarify Battery and Pit with you, sorry.
    So, if you've watched a field show, then you'll see some drummers marching alongside the band.
    There are snare drums, quads, and bass drums. Bass drums come in a variety of sizes, and the size determines how high/low the pitch of the drum will be.
    The Pit (pit crew) are the ones that are usually in front of the field, and play marimbas, timpanis, cymbols, gongs, and a variety of larger drums.
    The Pit and the Battery (along with two symbols) make up Varsity Percussion.
    Also, it doesn't make sense when you say "Battery Drums" and "Pit Drums." (the Pit isn't drums, anyway. its mostly marimbas)
    Maybe just say "Battery" and explain what battery is, and "Pit" and explain what Pit is.
    And A line's theme is "Thread"

VPR member senior Timothy Boehr described the WGI Regional as a "great time to see how we stand among other groups of the same caliber before heading to [our bigger competition in] Dayton."

    JVPR scored ___ at their SCPA show and won ___ place. At their SCPA Competition, VPR scored ___ and placed ___ overall. VPR was able to score ___, allowing them to place ___ at their WGI Regional competition.

    JVPR proudly unveiled Open Line's show this year, entitled "Legacy," which exhibits the way things change and affect one another over time. The show for A Line was "Thread" and was established around Asian themes that epitomized ideas of Confucius. This year, VPR was seen showcasing their indoor show, "Legend." "Legend," which illustrates elements of destiny, was "pretty unique compared to all of our [other] shows" with "a lot more heavy electronic bits which adds so much to the overall effect of the show" explained junior Coleen Ju, VPR member.

    According to JVPR member sophomore Alex Stevens, "the drumlines prepare for a show months in advance" with "much of first semester [spent] perfecting the skills that we will use in the show." Weekly afterschool rehearsals are combined with extra sectionals and individual practices. VPR hold practices on Mondays from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., Wednesdays from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., and occasional Saturday practices that range from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m for the Battery members and 2:00 to 9:00 p.m. for the Pit crew.

    Senior VPR member Daniel Zaki, had hoped to "place high [for Percussion], somewhere in the top three in the world" and to "set a new bar for Arcadia's World Class drumline." Coleen, who had shared the same goals as Daniel, also hoped to "finally get top three this year" because "last year [they] were so close to placing in SCPA." Alex had hoped to "grow as a performer and be able to perfect more of the minuscule details that divide the good from the great."

    Percussion has started off strong into a brand new season. Through their rigorous practices and unwavering dedication to their performing arts group, Percussion is truly hitting all the right beats as they ease into their competition season.

    Percussion WGI and competition

    Post  eileenchow on Tue Feb 09, 2010 6:48 pm

    Adrenaline and nerves rush through your body, as you prepare to start your show. As soon as you are signaled to begin, you launch into the routine that you have toiled to perfect, nerves gone as a rush of pride and excitement replaces your tension. That was the typical run-through of a Percussion competition, seen through the perspective of a Percussion member.

    On Feb. 6 at Valencia High School, Varsity Percussion (VPR) competed in an all day Southern California percussion Alliance (SCPA) show. Junior Varsity Percussion (JVPR) had their show the week before VPR's. JVPR also had a competition on Feb. 13 at Chino Hills High School. VPR's competition highlight of this month was their Winter Guard International (WGI) Regional competition from Feb. 20 to Feb. 21 at Rancho Cucamonga High School. The WGI Regional is a distinguished competition that features an immense gathering of numerous colorguard and percussion ensembles all through southern California. VPR member senior Timothy Boehr described the WGI Regional as a "great time to see how we stand among other groups of the same caliber before heading to [our bigger competition in] Dayton."

    JVPR scored ___ at their SCPA show and won ___ place. At their SCPA Competition, VPR scored ___ and placed ___ overall. VPR was able to score ___, allowing them to place ___ at their WGI Regional competition.

    Adrenaline and nerves rush through your body, as you prepare to start your show. As soon as you are signaled to begin, you launch into the routine that you have toiled to perfect, nerves gone as a rush of pride and excitement replaces your tension. At least, that's how you would feel during a typical run-through of a Percussion competition, if you could be a Percussion team member.

    On Feb. 6 at Valencia High School, Varsity Percussion (VPR) competed in an all day Southern California percussion Alliance (SCPA) show.

    JVPR scored ___ at their SCPA show and won ___ place. At their Valencia SCPA show, VPR scored a total of 71.95 after being penalized five points for having a show that was too short, and placed second overall. VPR was able to score ___, allowing them to place ___ at their WGI Regional competition.
