Unionville High School drummers will be part of a 'Sport of the Arts' show on March 22.

Thirty-six indoor percussion ensembles from seven states will compete at the Unionville Regional WGI “Sport of the Arts” show at Unionville High School (750 Unionville Rd., Kennett Square) on March 22.

The ensembles use an array of equipment, movement and skills. Percussive instruments and other props bring music and themes to life while showcasing technique, creativity and expression. Competition is divided into classes based on each program’s complexity and the group’s affiliation.  Among the local units competing are Unionville, Coatesville Area, Downingtown West, Ridley and Upper Darby.  Groups are traveling from as far as New England, New York and West Virginia to compete.

Penn State and George Mason universities, along with the Cadets Winter Percussion and United Percussion, will top off the competition with exhibition performances.

Doors open at 8:30 a.m., with the preliminary round starting at 9 a.m. Doors will reopen at 5:30 p.m. for the finals beginning at 6 p.m.  Tickets are $10 for prelims, $15 for finals, and $20 for a combination ticket. Food will be available all day.
