The rhythmic thump of drums echoes throughout Taylor County Elementary School, mixing with the ring of xylophones. It's Friday night and Speed Percussion is hard at work.
A percussion group made up of about 30 musicians ranging in age from 14 to 22, Speed Percussion formed in the fall of 2007.
The purpose, co-founder Patrick Brady says, was "to let young musicians perform at the national level of music sport/art."
The majority of the members hail from Taylor, Marion and Russell county schools and Campbellsville University.
