The Percussion Ensemble is composed of members from all grade levels, and meets in the fall and spring semesters. In the fall, the percussion ensemble is split between Front Ensemble and Drumline for the marching band portion of the year. In the spring, all percussion students collaborate on a Percussion Ensemble Concert in late February/early March. In addition to participating in the Cypress Woods Marching Band and spring Percussion Ensemble, all percussion members are required to prepare the TMEA All-Region etudes in the fall, as well as perform at Solo and Ensemble contest in the spring. The Percussion Ensemble performs original, contemporary, and traditional works for the medium.
