If you build it, they will come!
State of Sound is a marching indoor percussion ensemble unlike any other! Our world class instructors and designers work to create next-level percussion shows, performers, and exceptional young adults. Being a recognized San Diego State University student organization provides State of Sound members and educators the platform to participate in educational opportunities not available to other independent percussion organizations. The members of State of Sound will be provided the chance to receive community service hours through their mentorship work with k-12 music students in San Diego and beyond, being consistent figures in the areas of academics, life, and music. State of Sound will be a huge part of the campus life at San Diego State University in amazing San Diego, California; the ensemble will perform in front of the amazing Viejas Arena before each home basketball game and many other student events throughout the winter and spring season. Beginning in 2019, the ensemble will travel bi-annually to European WGI (Winter Guard International) Championships to represent San Diego State University!

San Diego, California Wins
The second largest city in the most populated state in America will become even greater with an enhanced music education community. As football is to Texas and skiing is to Colorado, California is known for its tremendous weather and arts community heard, seen, and modeled around the world. Through clearly identified programs to be products of this extension, San Diego will be able to offer that much more than its surrounding cities. State of Sound looks forward to being the catalyst able to provide an even more attractive option for families and individuals wanting to join a community that truly values its arts and education.
