Drum Ensemble

The Drum Ensemble is a beloved tradition at Kennedy and Coosa Valley Elementary Schools. Fourth graders audition for the Drum Ensemble, and those who are selected rehearse each week to prepare for concerts.

Dear Parents,

Here is some detailed information about our upcoming performance:

Tuesday, December 11th: December Choir and Drum Ensemble Concert

We cannot wait to present what we have learned this year. Please remember that attendance will be taken at this concert; I can help make carpooling arrangements if needed. Every student has an important part in this performance. Please see the Ensemble Handbook or email me if you have questions/concerns. We will wear our drum ensemble t-shirts (will be distributed shortly) and blue jeans. (No rips or holes, please.) If your child is in both drum ensemble and choir, please wear the drum ensemble t-shirt.
