Rimshot out of a cannon: Spirit of America’s Winter Percussion ensemble is well on their way to a fabulous show for 2010! The 25 members are exploring works by Aaron Copland, in a musical and visual depiction of rivers, plains and mountains. These young musicians are up to lots of new tricks: besides perfecting their new music and drill, they’re now playing hand bells, and they’re working on a three-way battery, pit and dance swap mid-number!
