The HSE Winter Percussion program, HIPE, is an extra-curricular activity that usually lasts 3-4 months during the winter. Percussion students work together to perfect a performance and compete in contests against other high school percussion ensembles. It allows students to become proficient at new percussion instruments and work as a team on a program that is specifically tailored to percussionists. HSE Winter Percussion is open to all percussion students grades 8-12.
