ConneXus Percussion presents, “Woven: By A Thread”
2016 marks the fourth year of competition for ConneXus Percussion, a Percussion Independent Open Class (PIO) ensemble from Columbus, OH. ConneXus Percussion is a division of the ConneXus Performing Arts Association, Inc., a non-profit organization that also operates an IA winter guard. ConneXus has proudly offered indoor percussion and winter guard opportunities to over 100 central Ohio performers since its founding in the fall of 2012.
For the 2016 season, ConneXus Percussion is proud to present, “Woven: By A Thread.” The show explores the use of fabric to both connect and divide. Jeremy Jorgenson, Program Coordinator for ConneXus Percussion, said this about the upcoming season, “I’m very excited to be returning to the ConneXus Design Team for 2016. This show has so many possibilities, and the organization as a whole is primed for another successful season. I can’t wait to get this production in front of our fans.” Executive Director Jack Boulis shared Jorgenson’s excitement, “2016 is shaping up to be a great season already. We are thrilled to begin our fourth year and can’t wait to share our progress with our fans and supporters.”

The 2016 Design Team includes: Jeremy Jorgenson (Program Coordinator/Visual Consultant), Drew Brown (Music Coordinator/Battery Coordinator), Jon Honeycutt (Visual Coordinator/Designer), Matt Hahn (Front Ensemble Arranger), and Tommy Roam (Battery Arranger).
