Winter Drumline is an auditioned percussion group that performs an original indoor show and competes at various venues in the Southern California Percussion Alliance (SCPA) circuit and at the Winter Guard International (WGI) Percussion Championships. The Drumline consists of the Battery, which includes snare drums, tenors, bass drums, and cymbals; and the Front Ensemble, or “Pit”, which is the percussion equipment and musicians who do not march but are stationary on the frontline. The “Pit” also describes the area where those percussion instruments are set.

During the fall season, the Drumline performs as part of the Marching Band & Color Guard with performances at school football games and at Western Band Association (WBA) field show tournaments throughout the state. Both Marching Band and Winter Drumline are 7th period classes that count as PE credit. Percussionists also take part in year-long Symphonic Band or Wind Ensemble concert ensembles, and many participate in the Percussion Ensemble chamber group and/or Jazz Band. The Battery also plays cadence for community events, including the Mission Viejo March Against Drugs and Relay for Life.

The MVHS Drumline started out in the local competition circuits in 1989, winning SoCal Championships in 1993 and 1994. They have won the WGI Percussion World Championship twice (2001 and 2007), silver medal three times and a bronze medal one time. Most recently, in 2019 the MVHS Drumline was a semifinalist in the Scholastic Open division at the WGI  Percussion World Championships in Dayton, Ohio.
