Rhythm X is not just a WGI ensemble, but a music educational organization that works hard every year to bring world class education to the youth around the world. With ensembles in both The United States, and Amsterdam. Partnered with The X Academy to host clinics in Texas, Costa Rica, Germany, Italy, and Lithuania. Rhythm X has a big presence in music education.
This past weekend both Rhythm X ensembles competed at their first WGI Regional of X17 in Dayton, Ohio. It was a successful and productive weekend for each ensemble in both rehearsals and performances. Winds took first place in their class in both prelims and finals, and Percussion took second in both prelims and finals.
Winds delighted the crowd with their show "Jumping Through Loops," featuring gorgeous uniforms from Fred J. Miller Inc. and the vibrant tarp from Field and Floor FX. Percussion added 11 back drop props produced by Pageantry Innovations, each standing 12' tall. Keep an eye out for more exciting additions as the show progresses!
The X Store was open both Saturday and Sunday for Rhythm X fans to grab all the best gear. Stop by at our next show to try on a jacket, test out the Tim Fairbanks and Tim Jackson Signature Innovative Percussion sticks, and pick up a lanyard for the recently reduced price of only $5!

This week we made some big steps in continuing to improve our show. We received our tarp and performed at the Nutter Center. Next week is our first regional show this season in Dayton!
Rhythm X had a successful weekend with all groups finishing in first place, and we can't wait for the next show. The Percussion Ensemble took advantage of the beautiful weather and spent a day outside.
We had some fans pop into Winds rehearsal on Saturday! All of Rhythm X's rehearsals are open to the public and we love having your support.
