In 2014, Rhythm X, Inc. had a lofty goal: to expand the artistry of Rhythm X beyond the percussion idiom. With the launch of our WGI Winds ensemble, and the winning of the first-ever WGI World Championship - Rhythm X, Inc. became much more than just a percussion education organization. Now, alongside European X - Rhythm X, Inc. hosts three independent WGI ensembles, each an innovation and an an icon in the WGI and marching music activity.
WGI has set very open rules regarding the instrumentation of the WGI Winds' ensembles. We're currently seeking performers who play:
- Bb Trumpet
- Baritone and Euphonium
- Flute and Piccolo
- Bb Clarinet
- Alto, Tenor, and Baritone Saxophone
We also utilize a rhythm section that will likely feature drum set, auxiliary percussion, synthesizers, guitar and/or bass guitar. If you're interested in auditioning for the rhythm section (there's no age-out!) just register as a percussionist and let us know you're interested in the wind ensemble.
Most importantly, we're playing Adam's Marching Brass! We have a great history with the Pearl/Adams family and we can't recommend enough the concert percussion equipment from Adams. It provides us with the amazing sound we're looking for. Now we have the awesome opportunity to play on some of the first Adams Marching Brass instruments to make it to the United States. The Pearl Corporation is the official US supplier of Adams Marching Brass and we're grateful to them for our continued partnership. Without them, the programs of Rhythm X, Inc. would not be possible.
