Welcome to the 2016 Impact Brass Program. Our brass ensemble is comprised of four main instruments Trumpet, Mellophone (french horn), Baritone (Trombone), and Tuba. Unlike your school band program all of our horns are front facing to compliment our marching program. Impact Drum Corps will be competing throughout Alberta in various Competitions and Parades. We are also partners with the University of Alberta Athletics Department, where we provide live entertainment during all of their home athletic events.
Our programs are designed to enhance the teachings and skills you have already learned through your own school program. Students who have participated in our ensemble have returned to their schools in the fall as better performers, leaders and have success in post secondary music programs.
A Little Q&A
What is required to join?
Although having a musical background is an asset it is not required to become a member.
We have programs in place to teach beginners and challenge the experienced players.
Do I need my own horn?
We provide top of the line Yamaha brass horns for all of our members. It will be yours to use at home for practice, at rehearsals and performances throughout the season.
How much will it cost to join?
Our membership fee is only $50 for the season and covers your horn rental and all instructional hours. All of the local performances and parades are included as well. We require a minimal fee for our winter and summer tours. Participation in our fundraising efforts will help offset the cost of these tours.
When are rehearsals?
We rehearse every Monday night at 6:30 – 9PM at our practice facility. We also conduct a weekend rehearsal once a month.
