Congratulations WGAZ Indoor Percussion State Champions!


Audition Registration 2019-20


Congratulations on an amazing marching season. Now it’s time for indoor!

After a successful inaugural season (STATE CHAMPIONS), we will be expanding the ensemble to perform not only in the WGAZ circuit, but also the WGI (Winter Guard International) circuit! There are so many exciting things happening this year! We are adding full middle school indoor drumline (Sahuarita Indoor Percussion Cadets), and are hosting a WGAZ competition! I am SO EXCITED to lead the growth of these ensembles. THANK YOU for joining me and my team on this journey!

**Sahuarita Indoor Percussion is an extension on Sahuarita Instrumental Music; our primary purpose is to help is to facilitate growth in our core music ensembles (band/orchestra/percussion).
