Indoor Percussion Premiere Takes the Stage

Ava Ward
Crack! The sharp sound of drums fills the air as the Indoor Percussion group practices for their upcoming performance, featuring seniors Gavin Exum, Marcus Rodriguez, and junior Eric Kappel.

February 3, the Cypress Creek Coyotes marched into their annual Indoor Percussion Premiere. The event brought in performers from across the county, with a wide range of schools and independent groups participating. The Cypress Creek Indoor group arrived with their piece “Immortal”, a number they spent countless hours and practices rehearsing. The band displayed outstanding performance quality and technique, a small sample of what was to come. 

The morning of the competition, the Coyotes arrived and spent the first few hours practicing and rehearsing countlessly, collectively working through every note and movement to pull the piece together. When the time of the performance arrived, the band marched on together, instruments and props in hand. Once they reached the gym and judges’ seats, they were ready to present their musical work, “Immortal.” 

“Immortal” was a piece depicting ancient Egyptian times, with a range of tones and notes telling the story of a Pharaoh and a performance that brought a unique acoustic to the audience. The drumline swept across the floor with choreography following percussion and their technical work and style. The performance earned the Cypress Creek Coyotes a score beating that of the previous year, and with many more performances to come the Coyotes are on the rise. 

“I feel like we did good, it’s not perfect, but that’s why it’s premiere,” senior Javier Quiles remarked after their performance.  

This competition showcased the band’s dedication and collective work as a unit to bring the best music and storytelling visuals. This Indoor season being important opportunity to many of the seniors involved, being their last first premiere, the Coyote band continues to work hard and go out with a bang, leaving an immortal legacy behind.
