Another year has come and gone and yesterday, WGI awarded Pulse Percussion the 2014 World Indoor Championship. If you haven’t seen their show, check out the video below. (Please note, this is not the final show they presented. You won’t see the hanging snare drummers in this video. I am looking forward to that video when it becomes available). The activity has continued to grow and the competition is fierce. Congrats to all of the groups who participated.

In the Scholastic Marching World division, Dartmouth High School placed first with a 98.238. For more information about this year’s final competition, visit
