Phoenix Union Indoor
Reach. Ignite. Soar. Excel.
Phoenix Union Indoor is an Independent A Marching Percussion (PIA) unit based out of central Phoenix. Originally an entertainment based drumline club for Carl Hayden Community High School, PUI has grown and developed into a competitive winter drumline open to anyone from 9th grade through age 20.
In 2016, "Falcon Winter Arts" experienced great success in their first year with a 2nd place finish at WGAZ Championships. Expectations for high-level performance continued in 2017 as the group opened its doors to all PXU musicians and renamed the group "Phoenix Union Indoor Percussion." After an amazing 1st place finish in Scholastic Regional A, the group rose to new level of competition by going Independent. Open only to PXU students and alumni in 2018, the group once again provided an excellent performance experience for musicians throughout central Phoenix.
After the wild ride of a pandemic, Phoenix Union Indoor is excited to be returning to active performance during the 2022 season and have brought together a phenomenal staff eager to share their knowledge and passion for performance.
The group is under the direction of Erica Scrivner, Director of Athletic Ensembles and Music Technology at Carl Hayden Community High School and Freddy Ochoa, Director of Bands at Carl Hayden Community High School.
PUI is proud to be sponsored by Innovative Percussion for all our stick and mallet needs!
PUI will participate in WGI Regionals throughout the coming season as an Independent A Marching Percussion unit.
PUI competes in our local circuit, Winterguard Arizona, and participates in Arizona State Championships each year.
PUI is operating out of Carl Hayden Community High School, part of the Phoenix Union High School District.
