Winter Percussion Ensemble
Winter Percussion is an extracurricular ensemble that meets twice a week after school from November through March. Students rehearse their competitive show and compete against other percussion ensembles across the southern region. Participation is based on audition and is open to both percussionists and wind players in the OHS Band program-- percussion background is not required.
The Orange High School Percussion Ensemble is the 2023 Atlantic Indoor Association Scholastic Concert A Class Champions and Gold Medalists. The ensemble earned first place at each competition they attended in the 2023 season: Holly Springs High School, Apex Friendship High School, Panther Creek High School, and AIA South Championships. This was their first season competing in Orange High School history.
The Orange High School Winter Percussion Ensemble is under the direction of Ryan Johnson, with assistance from Jacqueline Johnson and Stephen Downing.
