WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools’ Winter Winds group heated up their performance and earned the honor to compete at next week’s Indiana Percussion Association Winds State Finals at Center Grove High School. They qualified by increasing their score by 6.1 points from their last performance and narrowing the gap to first place by one point.
Awarded top placement for Best Visuals at Pendleton Heights High School Invitational and third place overall, this group’s feverish performance was hard to miss. The group utilized 92 different visuals and dance moves all while playing their instruments to illustrate the changes in music. This nearly six-minute performance is made up of nearly 50 different set moves that ebb and flow with the music’s flames and icy cold tunes. These visual moves happen simultaneously, transforming the tarp from flames to cool water. The group has been trained by professional dance instructors to elevate their movements.
The Warsaw Winter Winds group will perform at 6:53 p.m. Saturday, March 20,in block 9. Visitors are permitted in the stadium and will follow COVID-19 safety regulations. For those unable to attend in-person, the state competition event will be live-streamed from Center Grove High School for a nominal fee. The awards will be live-streamed via Facebook on the Indiana Percussion’s page at 9:30 p.m.
Kyle Travis, assistant band director, invites the community to join WCS for a performance at the Warsaw Community High School Tiger Den at 7 p.m. March 31. COVID-19 safety precautions will be in effect and masks will be required. This performance will showcase all Warsaw bands at the high school.
