  • About the Light Farms Percussion Ensemble

    The Light Farms Elementary Percussion Ensemble is Light Farm Elementary's primary instrumental ensemble. This will be the ensemble's 4th year in existence. In its first couple of years, the ensemble has had multiple opportunities for performance within the district and even competed at the state level. The ensemble is only open to 4th and 5th graders upon tryout and provides students with opportunities for performance, musicianship, leadership, discipline, and of course, musical fun. The ensemble has many performances throughout the year including school assemblies, Winter and Spring Concerts, and Orff competitions. Apart from working with Mr. Juarez, the students will get to benefit from interaction with other music directors from around the area.

    The ensemble this year will be every Thursday afternoon from 2:50-4:00 in the music room beginning September 5th.
