"The thing about playing percussion is that you can create all these emotions that can be sometimes beautiful, sometimes really ugly, or sometimes sweet, sometimes as big as King Kong and so on. And so there can be a real riot out there, or it can be so refined." -Evelyn Glennie

Drumline and Front Ensemble

The Drumline and Front Ensemble is a part of the Cowboy Pride Marching Band. These students perform with the band and pump up the crowd with cadences in the stands, at parades, pep events, assemblies- you name it. 

Winter Percussion

Winter Percussion is marching percussion without the marching band.  The ensemble performs a themed show at indoor percussion competitions. This year the Chaparral Winter Percussion has moved in to a new division and has currently been placing in the top of that division.
