The Courtland High School Winter Drum Line performs as its’ own ensemble during the winter sports season. This activity takes place indoors, most often in the gymnasium. The Winter Drum Line performs a show typically lasting 4-6 minutes. The Winter Drum Line activity often gives Band members the opportunity to explore a wide variety of concert and marching percussion instruments as well as advanced techniques in drill and movement. The Courtland Winter Drum Line participates in competitions in Virginia and North Carolina. These events are sanctioned by The Atlantic Indoor Association (AIA). The Winter Drum Line is competitive on a local, regional, and national level. Membership in the Winter Drum Line is selected by auditions held in the late fall.
