On Saturday, Februrary 4th, the North Pointe Indoor Percussion team had their first performance of the competition season at Williams Field High School. The group debuted their show entitled “The Crooked Man”, which tells the dark story of an innocent young girl who is corrupted by an evil spirit who eventually takes her soul. Jesse Ponce and Elizabeth Aguirre are featured as the Crooked Man and the young girl, respectively. While this was just an Evaluation Show, meaning the performance was not actually scored, the judges were very impressed with the group’s ability to convey the story to the audience, and with the technical level of marching and music performance the group demonstrated. Afterwards, the students had a chance to receive feedback from the judges, who gave the group notes of how to move forward with the show for the rest of the season.
Directors Luis Fisher and Justin Kline were very impressed with the group’s performance. “We are so proud of the sheer amount of work and commitment the students are putting forward this year to make this show happen, and we are very excited to see what the season has in store for North Pointe!”
