About OCI

Orange County Independent Ensembles began in 2010 with Founder and Director Sean Cunningham.

Sean had three goals:

Since that first year, Orange County Independent Ensembles has successfully operated 5 different programs, won several Southern California Percussion Alliance Championships, and Medaled 8 times in PIO, WIW and PIW at the Winter Guard International World Championships.

Returning to the competitive floor in 2024, we hope to build on our legacy and hope that everyone enjoys our product.

2024 will see the return of Orange County Independent Percussion to SCPA and WGI PIO competition! Join us in our long legacy of competing at the highest levels and experience the trip to WInter Guard International Championships in Dayton Ohio.
