Ironwood Ridge High School Indoor Percussion Ensemble is performing the fourth annual 15-hour drum-a-thon fundraiser Saturday.

The drumline is holding the 15-hour drum-a-thon fundraiser from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. the students will be drumming and rehearsing our 2020 production “ovr_soon."

Ironwood Ridge is the only school from Southern Arizona that will be going to California this March for the 'Winter Guard International Western Championships.'

Ironwood Ridge HS Indoor Percussion Ensemble was ranked second place in the scholastic National A-division at Winter Guard Arizona state championships in Spring 2019, says Director of Percussion and Associate Director of Bands Damon Knepper.

Knepper says Ironwood Ridge Indoor Percussion Ensemble collected over $10,000 over the past three years, and wants to continue that goal.

The drum-a-thon will go until 10 p.m tonight.
