Louisville Grade-Schoolers Perform a Rousing Version of ‘Crazy Train’ With Percussion Instruments

In 2012, the 4th to 6th grade group of the Louisville Leopard Percussionists performed a rousing version of the classic Ozzy Osbourne song “Crazy Train” using various percussion instruments. The Leopards are a non-profit group that provides extracurricular musical opportunities to children in the Louisville, Kentucky area for little to no cost. Donations are welcomed and can be made to help offset costs for the program.

The Louisville Leopard Percussionists began in 1993. They are a performing ensemble of approximately 55 student musicians, ages 7-12, living in and around Louisville, Kentucky. Each student learns and acquires proficiency on several instruments, such as marimbas, xylophone, vibraphone, drum set, timbales, congas, bongos and piano.

A group of 2nd and 3rd graders performed “Mo’ Better Blues” in 2013.
