WGI 2018

DESIRE | DISCIPLINE | DEDICATION
TAMA Salutes All Who Made WGI Great in 2018

Posted 5-8-18

To compete at WGI requires long practice hours, discipline, and unrivaled dedication. In addition to the percussionists themselves, it's also the commitment of the parents and volunteers that makes participation at World Championships possible. Through the intensity of their performances, the devotion and desire of these ensembles was on clear display at WGI 2018.

TAMA would like to congratulate all of the ensembles who placed and who competed impressively in their respective divisions. In the Scholastic World Class finals, Avon High School (IN) placed 7th while Cap City Percussion (OH) placed 13th in the Independent World Class finals. Unionville High School (PA) placed 4th and Temple City High School (CA) finished 9th in the Scholastic Class A finals. Two other TAMA lines participated in World Class divisions, Homestead High School (CA) in Scholastic and OC Indoor (OR) in Independent. Foothill High School (NV) participated in the Scholastic Open Class and Modulation Z (MO) in the Independent Open Class. TAMA Marching was well represented and we thank you all for an amazing WGI 2018.

We are thrilled to welcome the World Class Oregon Crusaders and OC Indoor to the TAMA family for the 2018 season and beyond!

"We are beyond exited to enter into this new partnership with Tama Drums. I have loved their kits since I began playing on them in my early years, and now the chance to outfit both The Oregon Crusaders and Oregon Crusaders Indoor with these incredible instruments in the pageantry arena is nothing short of amazing. To be able to play on instruments designed by my legendary teacher and mentor Tom Float and to work with him is such an honor, and we will do our best to do them justice! Thank you so much to Andy Wozniak and team for this wonderful opportunity!” —Mike Stevens, OC Indoor Director and OC Percussion Arranger

"On behalf of the Oregon Crusaders, I am thrilled to begin this partnership with TAMA, and to be able to provide the members of OC and OC Indoor with such high quality percussion instruments." —Mike Quillen, Executive Director
