It's easy to find Blue 2 indoor percussion and winterguard when walking into a building. Simply follow the rhythmic beat resonating throughout the halls as members practice pieces of the 2017 production over and over, working out details of the music and the show.
Blue 2 Percussion is WGI-style (Winter Guard International) indoor percussion ensemble based out of Mukwonago High School. The activity, also known as "The Sport of the Arts," combines the precision, athleticism and energy of drum corps and marching bands "with the intimacy of other visual art forms, such as dance and stage drama," as described on the Blue 2 website.
The 2017 varsity production, "Double Agent," is a spoof on classic spy movies about two rival spy organizations sent to retrieve and secure the same briefcase from a highly guarded location and return it to their headquarters, each trying to stymie the other's efforts, according to the group.
The group is set to perform after Mukwonago home varsity basketball games on Jan. 6, 20, and Feb. 3, and will play in Madison on tour March 17 and 18. A community performance will be held at 7 p.m., on April 8 at Mukwonago High School.
