"Heartbeat of the RCB" Campaign

Donation protected
The percussion (drums) section is the heartbeat of any musical ensemble and percussion section of the Ridgewood Concert Band (RCB) is no exception.   The percussionists of the RCB keep the pulse of the music and add color and texture to the music that we play each season.

The Ridgewood Concert Band is committed to making a substantial contribution to the music and artistic life of our community by providing audiences with the highest level of wind music performances.  In order to perform at the highest level our musicians need the highest level quality instruments.  Most band members provide their own personal instruments because they play just one instrument (eg. clarinet, trombone).  However, the percussion music includes such a wide variety of instruments (marimba, xylophone, timpani, bass drum, cymbals, snare drum….just to name a basic few!) that a percussionist may play three, four, or five instruments in the course of just one piece!  Because a percussionist simply cannot own, store, and transport EVERY percussion instrument, the RCB has a selection of percussion equipment that it owns for its members to use.  However, after 33 seasons the equipment being used is showing its age and it is time to provide instruments that match the quality of the percussionists playing them.

This Percussion Fundraiser is being spearheaded by the Ridgewood Concert Band Society (RCBS), which is a group of donors and members that are committed to supporting the creative endeavors of the ensemble and insuring that the RCB can be financially sound both today and in the future.   The RCBS has created this Percussion Fundraiser in order to purchase items off of the "Percussion Section Wishlist", including a vibraphone and a set of timpani.  

Please consider putting your support behind this endeavor to make sure the heartbeat of the RCB remains strong!
