What is GROOVE?
Iowa State University Grand Rhythmic Orchestra and Outstanding Visual Ensemble is a student led organization at Iowa State University committed to providing an opportunity for percussion students of any ability to improve upon their skills. We are made up of Iowa State students who desire to improve their technique, skills, and performance abilities!
What do we do?
GROOVE provides an outreach to the Ames and Iowa State communities by performing at various events and gigs throughout the spring semester.
Near the end of the spring semester we perform a large show, consisting exclusively of music written and performed by our members, for a combined audience of over 1,000 fans!
While we pride ourselves in putting on exciting and entertaining performances, there is also an educational side to GROOVE. Every member of GROOVE receives top-notch instruction, from our section leaders and outside clinicians, to help improve their playing ability, technique, and performance quality. This is especially helpful for those members who wish to audition for other ensembles in the future such as the Iowa State University Cyclone Football 'Varsity' Marching Band Drumline, as well as DCI or WGI ensembles
