kuna Percussion Ensemble
The Kuna Percussion Ensemble is made up of all the percussion students in the Band Program. This ensemble performs contemporary and standard works for concert percussion ensemble, as well as transcriptions and new works. In addition to performing percussion ensemble works, the Kuna Percussion Ensemble also provides the percussion sections for both the Wind Ensemble and Concert Band. The Percussion Ensemble works to build fundamental rudimental and technical skills to prepare students for classical percussion playing.
Each year the Concert Band performs at several local events. These events include various local concerts, community events, the District III Band Festival, Graduation and Concert Clinics. The Kuna Concert Band may travel as part of a spring performance tour at special events such as the Disney Performing Arts Series.
Membership in the Percussion Ensemble is open to students in grades 9 - 12 and is by director approval only. The ensemble begins rehearsing as a concert percussion group at the conclusion of marching band, and participation in marching band is a requirement for membership. Membership in Percussion Ensemble is a requirement for all percussion students in all grades and serves as their "regular band class".

FANTASTIC JOB at the band performance last night! You've made the most out of a difficult situation this year, and it was fun to see everything come together for our performance! I'm looking forward to some more fun times/music making here next semester as well- so keep practicing so that you're ready to jump right in when you next opportunity to perform comes around!
If I did everything correctly (here's hoping!), then this link should take you to a YouTube Playlist of our concert:
You guys rock- share this with the world!
