On behalf of the entire staff, and members of the Trumbull Percussion Ensemble, I would like to thank all parents that have helped make the 2015 Fall Season a success.  The winter Calendar is now posted, and is available for download.  See you all soon!

We would like to take a minute and thank all the members, staff, and parents of Trumbull Percussion.  Without all of your dedication, this ensemble would not be able to make it Dayton, Ohio, and have such a success fall and winter season.  You're support means everything, and we are lucky to have such all of you!  

Thanks again, and enjoy the break!

Dartmouth Show - Schedule and Time Frames

posted Feb 17, 2015, 7:25 PM by Unknown user

Saturday is the day of our first show in Dartmouth, MA. All students are to report to Trumbull high school between 8:30 and 8:45 that morning. Once everyone and everything is accounted for, we will be leaving no later than 9am. We will arrive at around 12ish in Dartmouth and the students will have time to get dressed and unpack the truck before getting into our warm up rotation. Our performance time is just after 3pm and the students will depart for home after awards. Most likely, the bus will be stopping at a rest area on the way home for the kids to eat. We will update you later in the week with an estimated arrival time back in Trumbull. Dawn Hnatuk has sent out a checklist of what every student will need. Please look this over!

Performance at 2:44 pm.  
Awards at 3:55 pm.  

Feel free to call us with any questions:

Alan - 203-543-1252
