Shadow Indoor Percussion is an ensemble from Oregon High School in Oregon, WI that competes at WGI World Championships. The 2015 group was overjoyed with their results, as during the season they were promoted to a national class (Independent Open) which includes almost exclusively college-age performers. They completely expected not to make finals, up against some 36 other older groups (only the top 15 make it). But they did make it, coming out above about 25 other ensembles to place 11th…an astounding end of the season. The kids felt like the mighty ducks! It definitely marked a new high point for the program. Even competing with performers mostly aged 18-22, they did an amazing job, exhibited an incredible amount of class and humility, and came home feeling like champions.
