ROXBURY, NJ - Roxbury High School Indoor Percussion completed its most successful program to date, placing 4th out of nine groups in the Scholastic Regional A Marching Class at the USBands Championships held at South Brunswick High School on April 2. 

This year, the students pushed the envelope with greater execution and a higher level of performance than the group ever saw. Twenty-nine students in grades 8-12 participated in this year’s ensemble.

The show was entitled “Energized” and featured original music by Ian Mapes and John Grom. Students created formations across the gym floor with body movements to express the show concept. This year, LED lights were even featured on instruments and the uniforms.
