About Insight Percussion
Insight Percussion Theater is trying to become Louisiana’s only independent open ensemble. The non-profit youth ensemble consists of approximately thirty performing members between fourteen and twenty-two years of age. The group competes under the governing organization of Winter Guard International (www.wgi.org). These competitions are typically held in a large theater or gymnasium to enable the use of body movement, drill, elaborate costumes, props, backdrops, and floor coverings. All these elements are used by the ensembles to help set the "stage" and to convey their musical "story" to the audience. Winter Guard International holds local and regional competitions featuring performing groups from around the world striving to be named best in their class. These competitions are held beginning in January and continue through the WGI World Championships in April.
