Go See An IPA Show This Weekend!

Winter percussion is officially in full swing, with the weekend of IPA competition completed! The next few weeks students and instructors will be working hard to complete and perfect their shows. Chops Percussion is a proud to be the presenting sponsor for Indiana’s own winter percussion circuit: Indiana Percussion Association. There are shows every weekend with IPA Prelims on March 21st, and the season concluding with IPA Finals on April 4th. This season’s IPA Finals will return to Ben Davis High School, while the Hulman Center at ISU is being renovated.

Interested in scores, schedules, or additional information? Go to www.indianapercussion.org for all the details you will need to enjoy this winter percussion season! Don’t forget to follow us on social media, as Chops will be returning to WGI Finals for more #TeamIndiana coverage in April!

Pro Audio Gear at Chops Percussion

For the past twelve and half years, Chops has strived to serve our customers with the best concert and marching percussion on the market. Our goal to stock the most common and necessary items and to provide quick-turnaround for instruments and not-stock items has allowed us to create positive relationships with both our manufactures and our customers. Over the last decade, the marching arts have evolved at record pace. One of the leading changes: electronics and pro audio.
