The award-winning Bixby Bands Percussion Department is under the direction of Mr. Geoffery Anikienko. In their respective band class, students are expected to build an understanding of basic to advanced concepts and techniques relating to both concert and marching percussion. Each summer and fall, all percussion students perform in the “Pride of Bixby Marching Band ” either as a member of the battery percussion or front ensemble. At the conclusion of the marching season, students have the option of participating in Bixby Bands Concert Season. All percussionists are encouraged to audition for the Honor Band and to participate in the Oklahoma Bandmasters Association Solo and Ensemble assessment each year. Additional opportunities for performance vary from year to year. Typically at the conclusion of each year, the entire Percussion Program will present a recital of soloists and mixed percussion ensembles.
