Diversity Drum and Bugle Corps
A drum corps for those with disabilities.
Welcome to a Special NEW PROGRAM sponsored by
The Bracken Cavaliers Alumni Drum and Bugle Corps called
The Diversity Drum and Bugle Corps.
Bracken has a long heritage, with many proud traditions, and is part of the fabric that comprises the Bristol 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 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 any type of disability. 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.
