What is Blue2 Indoor?

Blue2 Indoor is a winter percussion & colorguard program located in Mukwonago, WI.  We perform regularly at school events, out in the community, and at other venues throughout Wisconsin. Our program is open to all students currently in grades 5-12, regardless of ability or experience levels.


Mission Statement

We strive to provide students with the highest level of education and development founded on the pillars of responsibility, professionalism, leadership, and excellence. We 
achieve this goal through a hard-working, structured, yet fun & positive environment that constantly builds towards the goal of performances filled with excitement and pride.



Who Can Participate?

Blue2 Indoor is open to all students currently in grades 5-12. Students in grades 7-12 participate in full rehearsal days (9am-5pm), whereas our youngest students (grades 5-6) only rehearse 1pm-5pm. The Colorguard and Front Ensemble is open to students of all ages, while the Battery is only open to students in grades 7-12. All of the students perform together in the same production.

Schedule Structure

Blue2 Indoor typically rehearses and performs on Saturdays, with only a few exceptions (primarily for performances). Full Rehearsal/Performance Schedule

A typical Saturday rehearsal schedule:

Set-Up (approx. 8:30am)
9:00am-12:30pm: Rehearsal (Grades 7-12 only)
12:30pm-1:00pm: Lunch Break

Technique

Technique is the foundation of everything we do, and the gateway to musicality. As such, we spend a great deal of time unifying technique within each of our sections. For those of you who may already be proficient percussionists, here are the techniques you will be using in Blue2:
  • All battery instruments: Matched Grip (Snares will NOT be using traditional grip in 2017-2018)
  • Front Ensemble: Rear Fulcrum (for Two Mallets) and Musser-Stevens Grip (for Four Mallets)

Performance

Blue2 Indoor spends the season perfecting a single themed production, much like any competitive marching band. Last season's production ("Double Agent") can be viewed below.
