Being part of an ensemble that competes at Winter Guard International (WGI) and Minnesota Percussion Association (MPA) events offers students a unique opportunity to learn, perform, and compete in the constantly evolving and challenging activities. While competition is a part of the process, personal growth for the participants is the ultimate goal. Each group offers a unique combination of education, life experience, and tradition, sure to leave a positive, life-long impression on your child. At EPHS students will have the opportunity to continue growth and development in: teamwork, communication skills, work ethic, accountability, leadership, musical development ensemble skills, technique, performance, and group first.
The Eden Prairie Winter Drumline is a Scholastic World line competing in both MPA and WGI.
