Here is a little info about InPact Future-Band from the DCI website:

Through collaboration with each state’s music education and arts organizations with the Drum Corps International Tour as a backdrop, the BANDtastic Texas, BANDtastic Georgia and INpact Indiana's Future-Band initiatives will engage young minds and inspire young hearts. Participation in this program will motivate middle school students to consider the arts as they make important skills development decisions for their high school years and beyond, and impact lifelong arts behaviors.

  • The students performed as part of the "biggest middle school bands ever" in front of expected audiences of more than 12,000 spectators at large-scale, experience-of-a-lifetime DCI Tour events.  (LUCAS OIL ACTUALLY HAD 22,000, YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT, TWENTY TWO THOUSAND IN ATTENDANCE SATURDAY NIGHT!!)
  • The students performed with former David Letterman Night Show Band Trumpet Player AL CHEZ!!!
  • Several students from Wilson, Honey Creek, and South performed in the nearly 500 piece band!!!
