Roxbury Indoor Percussion took second place in the USBands Championship on Sunday, April 8th at South Brunswick High School.

The group competes in the competitive Scholastic Regional A Class and are critiqued in the areas of music and visual performance. This is the highest this group has ever placed in a championship event!

Roxbury Indoor Percussion LogoChrissy Aulenbach, a Roxbury employee shared that, “The Roxbury Indoor Percussion Ensemble is a great extension of the extremely strong music program and the students are very fortunate to have the opportunity to continue to play in this type of ensemble setting inside. Not many high school music programs have afforded their percussion students this fantastic music experience. My son, who is a senior at Randolph High School and will be attending Lebanon Valley College in the fall as a music education major is a percussionist and would have loved to have been a part of a group like this.”

Adding, “Congratulations and thank you for making music such an important part of so many students’ lives.”

Roxbury Indoor Percussion is made up of thirty students in grades 8-12 who put together elements of music, movement, and choreography.

This year’s show, entitled “The Darkness,” featured original music and arrangements by David Reeves. The show was based on the moment when the human spirit has the veil of darkness thrust upon them – thriving in all that is destructive and despaired. Introduced, tempted, and finally engulfed into the only world they have ever known.

The group began their season back in December and traveled to competitions across northern New Jersey throughout February, March, and April.
