Faisal Khurshid - Green Thunder Percussion

The Fine Arts Department congratulates senior Faisal Khurshid (snare drum) on his participation in the competitive 'winter drum line' - Green Thunder Percussion.  This year's GTP show "The Grid" is based on the movie TRON.


GTP, the Independent Open Class percussion ensemble presented by The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps, brings "The Grid" to life in 2012 for its fifth competitive season.  "This is by far the most talented group of performers we've had in our five years," said Manger and Visual Coordinator Paul Wiercioch.  Green Thunder recently placed second in Independent Open Class at the WGI Indianapolis Percussion Regional with a score of 81.55. 


The embedded video is of GTP's performance at the WGI Prelims in Kentucky this past weekend.


Congratulations Faisal!
