I’m Peter, Corps Director / Brass Arranger

First of all, thank you so much for registering for the Impulse Experience! Our staff is incredibly excited to get things going for our 2022 season, and we have a lot in the works. I think that it's going to be a great year.

I know that you have probably delayed getting audition materials this week. The team at Impulse has been trying to discern if we should continue forward with the Impulse Experience set for this coming weekend because of the drastic rise in Covid numbers. While we have many protocols to ensure that you, our staff, and all of the volunteers are safe, we now think it best to postpone the experience to the weekend of the 29th and 30th of January. I’m personally so sorry to disrupt your plans and your family’s. Your safety is essential to us, and we want to ensure that we are doing all we can to provide a healthy and safe environment. Your registration will roll right over to the 29th and 30th. Materials will be coming your way. If for any reason you have any hesitancy about coming to audition for Impulse, PLEASE feel free to drop me a note…or a text…whatever is most comfortable for you. I’m always open to chatting with you or your parents! Thank you so much for your understanding.
