Kristina Monson, a drumline crew member explained that “drumline is an indoor percussion ensemble that incorporates music, theater and dance into its performance.” Drumline is an activity that many school bands choose to take part in. However, there are also some single groups that participate in drumline.
Eagan drumline participants are band members who play all different kinds of instruments. They all come together to perform a show that incorporates each of the instruments.
