Interested in music, drama/theater and sports?  Winter Percussion Ensembles offers all of it and more!

Riverside High School Winter Percussion will be holding auditions at Riverside HS from 4:15-6:30 The week of December 4th – 7th.  The fee to audition is $25.00 (refunded if student does not make the ensemble).

Musical experience preferred; but not necessary. Greenville County middle and high school students whose schools do not offer a winter ensemble program are eligible to participate.

Riverside Indoor percussion program is a completely unique activity that combines the best elements of jazz band, symphonic ensemble, marching band, theater production, stage musical, and sports team. The season is generally from December through April. Competitions are held locally and more sparse through the season when compared to marching band season.

Auditions consist of two parts: clinics and master classes with a formal audition day. Points are awarded for attendance; bringing required materials; and being prepared for each session. Audition evaluation is based on: timing, rhythmic accuracy, quality of sound, technique, strength/chops, reading ability, attendance, commitment level, attitude, possessing required materials, and past performance (only for returning students).

Come join students from area schools for another exciting Riverside High School Winter Percussion season!


Riverside Winter Drumline Auditions are open to anyone in Greenville County Schools provided they do not have a winter percussion program on their own campus.
