The Armada Winterguard and Shadow Indoor Percussion groups will hold a free performance next weekend at the Oregon High School gymnasium.
Both groups, which are part of the Oregon Marching and Athletic Arts Program (OMAAP), travel around Midwest performing their routines at a variety of regional competitions.
Winterguard, known as “Sport of the Arts,” combines modern dance, ballet, acrobatics, tumbling and equipment work to create a visual program set to music. According to a press release, Shadow Indoor Percussion’s goal is to innovate, excite, energize, and create a program that is nationally known for excellence.
This year’s program is titled “Foundries of the Night.” It begins at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, March 8.
The first of its kind in Wisconsin, OMAAP incorporates aspects of modern marching pageantry into one comprehensive program, including Shadow Armada (summer marching band, seventh to 12th grade),
