**** The Youth Bands rehearse one evening a week. IN addition to preparing for our regular concerts, the students had to learn and memorize nearly 8 minutes of music, and try to rehearse it a little at the end of our rehearsals. This is a very different thing for the program to be sure****
The Triangle Youth Brass Band is currently performing on the original set of instruments purchased by the Triangle Brass Band over 25 years ago. With the formation of the Brass Ensemble, it is necessary to purchase a new set of brass band instruments for the Youth Band to play on. This is a huge undertaking, as a complete set of instruments can cost nearly $60,000. The Triangle Youth Brass Band is the premiere youth organization of its kind in the United States, catering to nearly 70 young musicians each season, possessing a combined 9 North American Brass Band Association (NABBA) National Championships between the two bands.
Our goal is to purchase a matched set of instruments with the following instrumentation: 1 Eb Soprano Cornet, 10 Bb Cornets, 1 Bb Flugelhorn, 4 Eb Tenor Horns, 2 Bb Baritones, 2 Euphoniums, 3 Tenor Trombones, 1 Bass Trombone, 2 Eb Tubas, 2 BBb Tubas, 1 Vibraphone, and 1 Marimba.
We need your help!!! With your generous donation (tax-deductible), you will help secure a bright and fruitful future for the Youth Bands for another 25 years. You will also be listed in our concert programs under our DONORS BAND, in recognition of your support.
