The Vista Ridge High School Percussion Ensemble has been named winner of the 2018 Percussive Arts Society International Percussion Ensemble Competition. This annual award is the highest honor that any scholastic concert percussion ensemble in the country can achieve.

High school percussion programs across the county submit recordings of their groups to the Percussive Arts Society to be evaluated and rated by a panel of 5 judges. Each ensemble competes against each other and the top three garner the prestigious distinction to perform in front of thousands of attendees at the PAS International Convention in Indianapolis, IN in November.

Congratulations to VRHS Director of Percussion Hector Gil and the Vista Ridge High School Percussion Ensemble!
