When does Rise Percussion perform?
Rise Percussion performs and competes at Rocky Mountain Percussion Association events, the WGI Denver Regional, and WGI World Championships.
What does it cost to be a member of Rise Percussion?
Last year, tuition for each member was approximately $1700. We aim to get as close to that number as possible this year.
Tuition can be split into manageable monthly payments,
Fundraising opportunities and Scholarships are available.
Does Rise accept High School students?
Yes! However- Rise is not in the business of stealing people from high school programs. If your school has a winter percussion ensemble, you must be in that ensemble in order to participate in Rise.
If I audition and don’t make it on the instrument I want, can I play something else?
While all positions in the ensemble are open for audition, it’s reasonable to expect a certain level of expertise at every instrument. There are no “easier” instruments in the ensemble. The pre-audition clinics are a great way to tell where you stand compared to some other players, and to gauge your chances of making any particular spot.
