Westfield High School Concert Program - Winter 2022:
Indoor drumline (IDL) is almost here! Indoor drumline you ask? How can one march indoors and what the heck is it anyway? IDL is, according to Wikipedia, a "type of marching ensemble consisting of the battery and front ensemble instruments. It differs itself from a traditional percussion ensemble by not only on musical performance, but on theatrics and marching." If you’ve never seen an IDL Performance, here is Westfield in action last year at the AIA Championship in Hampton. For those of you interested in joining IDL this year, "tryouts" are this week as follows:
Tuesday 15th (Battery/Drums only) 6 - 9 pm
Thursday 17th (Front Ensemble only) 6:30 – 9 pm
Tuesday 22nd (Both groups) 6 – 9 pm
It's a load of fun and you don’t have to be a percussionist to join! Email Merold Saffa for more info.
Winter guard is basically color guard but in the winter without the band. We spin flags, rifles, sabres, and other equipment in a three to four minute show. Winter guard goes from December to late March/early April. Throughout the season, we build technique, develop performance skills, and learn choreography for the show. Practices are in the evenings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and some Fridays. Competitions take place on certain Saturdays in February and March, with finals in early April. Winter guard is a very fun experience, and everyone who's done it has enjoyed it and learned many new skills. If you or anyone you know is interested in joining, email firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com
