Diversity Drum Corps - Ensemble for the disabled

It is time to give the disabled citizens of Bristol, PA a chance to show their talents.

The Bracken Cavaliers of Bristol, PA has a long heritage, with many proud traditions, and is part of the fabric that comprises the Bristol, PA community. It has been a part of this community for almost 100 years. During that time, we have provided a safe place for the youth of Bristol and its surrounding areas to have a fun time learning music and performing shows not only in Bristol but throughout the area.


We have noticed that the youth of Bristol have several activities they can join like all sports, dance schools and art. The one thing Bristol doesn’t have is a music/performing arts program for the youth.


In the spirit of working more closely with the Bristol Community, Bracken is looking to reestablish a musical ensemble for the youth of Bristol. Not any type of ensemble, but a very special one to perform here in Bristol and its surrounding areas.


This ensemble will be made up of those with disabilities. It will be an ensemble who will be able to play and become performing artists. We know that many of those with disabilities have some very amazing talents. Unfortunately, many never get a chance to show their capabilities. Bracken wants to provide that opportunity here in Bristol.


We feel this is a large but worthwhile undertaking. It will literally take a village to provide the wonderful gift of music to these young kids.


We need and are asking for your help. If anyone would like to partner with us to help this become a reality, or volunteer your time, your energy, anything that you can to make this project a reality.

Even a good word passed to others will have meaning.


We are planning several popular fundraisers and applying for grants to help generate the funds needed to start this organization., but we can not rely on that alone. More help will be needed. A contribution would be welcomed and put to good use. $1.00 - $5.00 - $100, anything you can afford will be useful as this project moves forward. 100% of all donations will go to help providing instruments, uniforms and specialized instructors for the members.


Working together we can provide a great opportunity for our members to enjoy the gift of music.
