OC Indoor is a WGI Percussion Independent World Class (PIW) ensemble consisting primarily of students aged 17-22. Our mission is to provide young people with an elite musical education and performance experience. Our competitive season runs from September to April. We compete locally in the NWAPA circuit and will travel to Dayton, OH for our 11th trip to WGI Sport of the Arts World Championships at the conclusion of our season in April 2019.
OCI was formed in 2008 by several local percussion instructors wanting to provide a continued performance opportunity for their students once they graduated from high school. In our first season of existence, OCI was fortunate to be crowned WGI Independent A Class Champions at WGI World Championships. Since that season, OCI has fostered the growth of many students from the Pacific Northwest as well as students from Holland, Japan, and Germany. Now, in our second decade of operation, we continue to strive for a positive, safe, educational, balanced, and professional environment that will allow our cast members to grow and flourish in the arts of percussion and performance.
OC Indoor is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group and is proudly part of their parent organization, the Oregon Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps
