INov8 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based out of Floyds Knobs, Indiana with the purpose to provide an inspiring place for young percussionists to showcase their talent and grow as musicians and adults. INov8 Winter Percussion was founded in September of 2015, due to a need in the Southern Indiana and Louisville area for a WGI based percussion performance ensemble. INov8 actually stands for Indiana / Ohio Valley.
The Executive Director and Designer, Dave Isaacs, has been the percussion director at Floyd Central High School since early 2014, and saw the potential for something bigger as soon as he walked in the door. Even more-so when he learned how scarce involvement in the winter activity was in S. Indiana and the Louisville, Kentucky area. With the amount of talent, and the lack of programs involved in WGI and the winter activity, there was a need for something more, and something local for students to strive for.
2018 will be the third season for INov8 Winter Percussion, and we're picking up momentum! In only our second season in existence, we made our first appearance in the WGI World Championship Finals in Dayton, OH, placing in the top 10 of our class. Going into this next season, we have many new challenges, and need as much support from donors and volunteers as we can get. Please consider making a donation today!
We appreciate your support and come see us at a show!
The Audition Clinics are open to anyone age 14-22 and all skill levels. The Registration process is simple, and is only $75 for all 4 audition clinics. For this one-time fee, you will be registered for the first 3 audition clinics starting September 10th, where you will be surrounded by the some of the most talented performers in the area, and be taught and evaluated by our World Class staff. You will also receive an official 'INov8 Audition Clinics' T-Shirt when you arrive. Click "Join Us" below to begin the process. If you have more questions, you can contact us here, but we suggest you read through the Audition F.A.Q. first, as it may answer most of your questions.
If you plan to audition specifically for the Visual Ensemble, your audition process will be slightly different. Click the link below to request more info and we'll update you as soon as we have more details!
