DAYTON, OH - On April 20, 2013 Rhythm X won its third Independent World Gold Medal at the 2013 WGI Percussion World Championships in Dayton, Ohio. Rhythm X scored a 98.2625, breaking its own previous world record by one point. Previously, the record was set by Rhythm X's 2009 performance of Touch.
Rhythm X performed its 2013 program The Man in the Arena for a sold-out crowd at the University of Dayton Arena. The show, based on an excerpt from a speech by T. Roosevelt featured music from Rachmaninoff's second piano concerto and Survival by Muse.
Rhythm X would like to thank the countless fans, supporters, donors, volunteers, families, and staff for their dedication and support. Also, without the support of our incredible sponsors this season would not have been possible. Thanks to the Pearl Corporation, Adams, Sabian, Fred J. Miller, Inc., Evans Drumheads, Innovative Percussion, D'Addario, Planet Waves, Digimet, and Etymotic Research.
