Innovative Percussion Welcomes Back Santa Clara Vanguard
Innovative Percussion is proud to announce the addition of the Santa Clara Vanguard to its family of drum corps. George Barrett, CEO of Innovative Percussion stated, ?Everyone at Innovative Percussion is extremely pleased to have the Santa Clara Vanguard organization back in our family of elite drum corps. The Vanguard organization was a key partner in the birth of Innovative Percussion as a small keyboard mallet manufacturer, being one of the first drum corps to use our first outdoor keyboard mallets, the Field Series. Vanguard and IP have a long history together and we look forward to working with the organization for many years to come.? SCV, along with the Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets and the Vanguard Winter Percussion, will begin using Innovative Percussion products exclusively during the 2011 season. Jeff Fiedler, CEO of the Santa Clara Vanguard says “I’m very proud to announce the return of Innovative Percussion to the Vanguard family as one of our esteemed partners. Re-establishing the Santa Clara percussion program on the leading edge of the activity’s multiple musical presentations will require hard work, consistency and creativity, all of which are complimented by the sticks and mallets created for Paul Rennick and the Vanguard by Innovative Percussion.”
In addition, Innovative Percussion signature artist Paul Rennick was recently named Percussion Arranger and Caption Manager for the Santa Clara Vanguard, while Sandi Rennick was named Front Ensemble Arranger. Paul and Sandi have most recently been co-arranging for the Phantom Regiment percussion section, where they received the DCI Fred Sanford High Percussion Award in 2006, 2008, and 2010.
