What is "Drumming for a Difference"?
Each year we host an all-percussion concert in the Mukwonago High School West Gym featuring the percussion ensemble classes from Park View Middle School & Mukwonago High School as well as Blue2 Percussion and selected student soloists.
Goodwill donations are strongly encouraged; all of the proceeds are given to a charity chosen by the band department staff.
Our third annual "Drumming for a Difference" Concert will take place on Friday, March 11th at 7:00pm in the Mukwonago High School West Gym. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $5. All proceeds will be donated to the Southeastern Wisconsin branch of NAMI - the national alliance on mental illness.
This event is unticked and open to the public; donations can be made at the door.
Performance recordings are available from most concerts and can be found on the Mukwonago Bands YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook pages.
