Indoor Drumline

The Liberty University Indoor Drumline (LUID) is an auditioned percussion ensemble dedicated to excellence in the marching arts.  Since its founding in 2012, LUID has been an award-winning ensemble, competing each spring semester at AIA and WGI competitions.  From 2012-2014, the group competed in Percussion Independent A Class (PIA).  They have been competing in Percussion Independent Open (PIO) since their advancement in 2015.  At the end of their season each April, LUID travels to WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio where they compete with up to 40 units from around the US.  While in Dayton, the group has the exciting opportunity to watch World Class ensembles from around the globe compete in their final performance of the season.

Membership is by audition in October each year.  Please contact Tommy Goddard for audition information.
