CADENCE SENIORS INDOOR WINDS
The main programme of the senior group is our Indoor Winds Ensemble. Indoor Winds is a fusion of music, choreography and traditional marching displays performed on an indoor arena about the size of a basketball court.
After performing as a regular Drum Corps for many years and competing throughout the Summer we took the decision in 2019 to make the transition to an Indoor Winds group.This allows us to be more creative and still offer our performers a competitive environment whilst allowing us to investigate and provide exciting performance opportunities throughout the Summer months.
We can accommodate the traditional Drum Corps brass, percussion or colour guard performers within the Indoor Winds set up as well as woodwind, singers or even guitar players if required.
We compete primarily within the Indoor Music Games (IMG) circuit which runs from March – May with shows held in sport halls or large school buildings. From 2020 and beyond we plan to compete in the Colour Guard Netherlands (CGN) circuit which holds contests across the Netherlands.
Cadence Performing Arts are a registered charity (1021652) and all our programmes are funded by member subscriptions, donations and fundraising events. The biggest costs are rehearsal venue hire, transportation and insurance all of which increase each year so we are always looking to supplement our income with regular donations or fundraising ideas. Our members often complete their own fundraising events such as sponsored music marathons, car wash days or gruelling 50 mile walks all of which bring in much needed funds to the group.
