Yellowjacket Drumline

The Yellowjacket Drumline represents one of the most exciting performance opportunities available at Graceland University! This ensemble offers students from all majors the opportunity to perform in front of thousands of people each year at athletic, school spirit, recruitment, and other events throughout the Lamoni community and on campus. The Yellowjacket Drumline regularly travels throughout the Southern Iowa/Northern Missouri region, as well as the Midwest, to perform and present clinics. Percussionists in this group study contemporary performance techniques and perform the most current repertoire for the modern marching percussion ensemble. 

The Graceland University Yellowjacket Drumline is proud to be sponsored by, and perform exclusively with, Pearl/Adams Percussion Instruments and Vic Firth Drumsticks and Mallets.


The Yellowjacket Drumline meets Monday from 6:30pm – 8:00pm and Wednesday from 8:00pm – 9:30pm.
