Our History

The Oak Ridge Percussion Society was founded in September 2011 with its stated goal being promoting interest in and the study and practice of musical percussive arts.

Oak Ridge Percussion was created to support a growing interest in drumlines and its founding was aided by the Optimist Club of Colborne, Holcim Canada Inc. , The Township of Cramahe, and Colborne Public School.

Over the past eight seasons, the group has performed in many area parades and competed in the Canadian Drumline Association’s Provincial Championships each year winning six provincial championships across three provinces.
