Junkyard Hawks is an innovative percussion ensemble of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders attending Hite Elementary School. These young, talented musicians read and perform a variety of percussion music including Contemporary, Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, and most notably, making music with “junk”. Much of their repertoire includes common objects such as buckets, trash cans, plastic bags, poles…nearly ANYTHING that can be used to make a sound. Their performance style is energetic, creative, interactive and always a pleaser for all ages.
Since their early development in 1998, Junkyard Hawks has received multiple distinguished ratings for solo, as well as, ensemble performances and has been invited to perform both nationally and at many local venues, such as Disney World, STOMP, New York’s Times Square and much, much more. Founded by Ginger Greer, the Junkyard Hawks continue to grow and impress the community under the current direction of Jecorey Arthur.
