Kemp High School is sending two percussion ensembles to state UIL competitions this weekend. They will perform the Class 1 selection Valley of Nepal. The public got to hear the selection Monday night during the Percussion Pizazz at the school featuring all percussionists sixth through 12th grade. This is the first year Kemp is sending two percussion ensembles to state.

Class 1 selections are the most difficult to perform and since this group earned the top rating of a Division One when they competed in Regionals in February that advanced them to the state competition.
