Here's what WGI said about Spirit of America Winter Percussion: "Spirit of America" captured the scenic vistas of the American west with “Ameriscapes”. Even before playing a note, our eyes were treated to one of the most striking sets of the weekend with wheat fields, a river, and mountains painted on their floor. During a pastoral middle section, the battery picked up handbells and played “Simple Gifts”. The echo of handbells in a silent arena full of spectators was haunting. The mountain backdrops grew taller in the finale, with fabric mountaintops ascending, creating a memorable lasting impression."
