This a short clip of the UMass Drumline battery & pit, joined by the UMMB small ensemble, rehearsing an Earth, Wind & Fire Medley, part of our 2014 field show. The video was taken on Monday, August 25, 2014 in Grinnell Arena, on the UMass campus.

Each day of band camp begins with a review of the material learned the day before and/or an introduction to the next chart. As the day and rehearsals progress, the percussion section will join with other sections of the band. Each night culminates in putting together all of the day’s work. In this video, the 5 percussion sections (snares, tenors, basses, cymbals, and pit) join with several brass and woodwind players and singers from the UMMB’s small ensemble to rehearse one of the show tunes.

Thanks to Sally Johnson, UMass Drumline cymbal tech, for this video.
