DESCRIPTION: The Triangle Youth Brass Band playing Circus Bee march on Saturday February 19, 2011 at Meymandi Concert Hall in Raleigh, NC
The Triangle Youth Brass Band is one of the premiere youth brass band organizations in the Unites States having won 6 NABBA Youth Division Championships. Together with the Triangle Youth Brass Ensemble, the organization has won 9 NABBA championships and serves nearly 70 young musicians.
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.
