The eNVision Arts Indoor Program uses all kinds of percussion instruments ranging from world drums to electronics and includes the color guard element which utilizes dance,flags and weapons. The group competes under the governing organization of Winter Guard International. These competitions are typically held in a large university gymnasium to enable the use of body movement, drill, elaborate costumes, props, backdrops, and floor coverings. All these elements are used by the ensembles to help set the “stage” and to convey their musical “story” to the audience (a “Theater” type of program). Winter Guard International holds local and regional competitions featuring performing groups from around the world striving to be named best in their class. These competitions are held beginning in January and continue through the WGI World Championships in April.
eNVision Indoor rehearses for 6 months and has over 20 performances a season. The group hosts the local competition circuit (NNIA) which gives youth from all over Northern Nevada the chance to perform in a fun and exciting atmosphere while receiving feedback from experienced professionals from around the country. eNVision also participates in many community events to “give back” to their fans and supporters in their own artistic way.
In addition to their community events, eNVision also competes in some of the biggest events on the west coast. Not to mention, the biggest event in the nation; The Winter Guard International World Championships in Dayton, Ohio. This week long event has groups from all over the World in attendance. It is the Olympics of this activity!
